Paper Abstract

High performance IR sensors have, over the years, found acceptance in a wide range of military equipment on land, sea, and in the air. However, until now, size, weight, cost, and reliability of this military equipment has tended to limit its acceptance in civil markets. This paper addresses the benefits of uncooled IR sensors and discusses civil applications of the technology.
