Paper Abstract

The Naval Research Laboratory is developing next generation CMOS imaging arrays for the Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus missions. The device development is nearly complete with flight device delivery scheduled for summer of 2013. The 4Kx4K mosaic array with 10micron pixels is well suited to the panoramic imaging required for the Solar Orbiter mission. The devices are robust (<100krad) and exhibit minimal performance degradation with respect to radiation. The device design and performance are described.
