Paper Abstract

This paper presents system trade-offs necessary to deliver the high performance available from the emerging UK second generation long-linear detector technology, in the long wave infra-red (LWIR) waveband. These trade-offs include thermal referencing methods, dynamic range, and scan configurations. Experience and measurements from the new GEC-Marconi Sensors' LOLA Imager are used to support the arguments. Also indicated are the trade-offs leading to optimized systems for roles in demanding applications such as advanced airborne targeting.
