Paper Abstract

An infrared imaging system which uses a staring focal plane detector array is described. The system operates in the 8 micrometer to 10 micrometer wavelength region and is required to acquire images with large scene temperature ranges. A nonlinear compensation algorithm is used to achieve a low NETD. The modeling and development of the imaging system and compensation processor required testing and characterization of the detectors comprising the array. The techniques used for the characterization of the array and some aspects of the use of the array are described.
