Paper Abstract

A high-performance IR sensor has been developed at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (NDRE) as part of a test system for modern electro-optical fire control techniques. Diamond turned, aspheric optical elements and modern IRCCD detectors are used. Sensor output is available both as analog video and in digital form for connection to a digital image processor. Horizontal field of view is variable from 3.3 degree(s) to 60 degree(s) with a fixed spatial resolution of 0.2 mrad and a thermal resolution of better than 0.1 degree(s)K. The sensor is stabilized internally in roll and pitch.
