Paper Abstract

Aerojet has developed high performance infrared (IR) cameras based on Kodak's 640 by 486 pixels platinum silicide (PtSi) array. Several versions of the camera have been developed for the various applications. The cameras have multiple field-of-view (FOV) optics, with the narrow FOV used for long range observation. The use of the large array of PtSi leads to very high image quality as well as high resolution. The operation in the medium-wavelength infrared (MWIR) allows observation at very long ranges in high humidity, warm atmospheres. Field tests have shown the advantage of these cameras, particularly in coastal and marine applications.
