Fairchild Imaging by BAE Systems develops and manufactures solid-state electronic imaging components, cameras, and systems. We are a company devoted to the creation of electronic imaging technology, development of that technology to production practicality, and manufacture to commercial success.
Since 2011, Fairchild Imaging has been part of BAE Systems, a global defence, aerospace and security company employing approximately 93,500 people worldwide. Our wide-ranging products and services cover air, land and naval forces, as well as advanced electronics, security, information technology, and support services. Coming together as one, Fairchild Imaging and BAE Systems offers a unique ability to provide an unmatched combination of solutions to government and commercial applications.
We are a descendent of the Fairchild family of companies, originally a part of Fairchild Semiconductor. In 1973, we brought semiconductor-based electronic imaging to commercial reality with the first commercially available CCDs. Since that achievement, our Fairchild Imaging Sensors and our OEM customers have introduced imaging technology and processes that have created whole new industries.
