who has been promoted to the position of VP of Energomera Electronic Materials and will supervise Monocrystal as a part of his new responsibilities.


Kachalov joined the company in 2002 and has a successful history of serving in various capacities at Monocrystal including positions of CTO and VP of Sales & Marketing. His prior experience includes research and lecturing in the area of advanced materials for solid state electronics at Stavropol State Technical University (SSTU) and two years of scientific fellowship at Hamburg University of Technology (HHUT). Kachalov holds Master’s degree in solid state electronics and PhD in materials science from SSTU.


“We are very excited about these two promotions in our top management team. As we continue sustainably developing our Monocrystal into a global market leader, the changes are an excellent indication of our capability of growing new leaders and strengthening expertise of our management board,” said Vladimir Polyakov, President of Energomera.


Sofradir’s Compact LEO MW has Kingsize Performance 2010-06-14


French firm Sofradir, a developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors for military, space and industrial applications has launched the LEO MW, a compact 15-micron pitch MW TV format IR detector with digital interface.


It is well suited for military handheld devices that have to be compact, lightweight and consume as little power as possible.


The LEO MW module, including its digital interface board, measures 120 x 55 x 72mm, has a power consumption of 4.5W and weighs 350 grams. These features draw on the same

design know-how used in Sofradir’s flagship 15-micron midwave IR detector that set the industry standard for size and performance in IR detection. LEO MW’s compactness and energy-saving features are also enabled by its ability to use two of the smallest coolers on the market, which can only be used with selected IR detectors.


Another major advantage of LEO MW is its digital interface. Previously, IR system engineers would have to design a complex analogical electronic board and then integrate it into an IR imaging system to make the IR detector run. By removing this complicated step, where a system engineer would have to try and find room to squeeze in an electronic board, integrating LEO MW with its digital interface makes that IR system design process easier and frees up space.


“LEO MW provides our customers with a simplified interface that saves them time and money, since they no longer need to design the proximity electronic board themselves,” says Philippe Bensussan, Chairman and CEO of Sofradir. ”LEO MW is also ideal for IR equipment manufacturers who design, upgrade and retrofit thermal imaging equipment to satisfy SWaP (reduce system size, weight and power) requirements in military applications.”


LEO MW extends Sofradir’s flagship product line of compact, high-performance and low power consumption 15-micron pixel pitch IR detectors.
