Paper Abstract

Recent developments on QWIP-LED detectors have led to Pixelless Imaging Devices. These detectors convert a thermal IR image into a near-IR image giving the possibility to image an IR scene at a higher resolution on the same detector area. Their use into a surveillance system is of great interest. The aim of this theoretical study is to compare the Signal-to-Noise ratio obtained with different spectral bands of these new pixelless sensors.
