Paper Abstract

Staring infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) utilizing uniform/high quantum efficiency detectors are the enabling technology for systems providing high sensitivity, high speed, and low cost. This paper describes the performance and features of the lmaglR, a commercially available infrared imaging system utilizing staring FPA technology. Budget requirements have driven the infrared community, including the military, to purchase commercially available systems. These systems are required to consist of off-the-shelf hardware and need to interface to commercial display and storage devices. The lmaglR meets and exceeds these requirements by supporting a broad variety of interfaces and by providing a number of storage and processing solutions internal to the system itself.
