Paper Abstract

A framing camera incorporating an ultra high resolution CCD detector array comprised of 9,216 by 9,216 pixels is discussed. The detector array measures 8 by 8 centimeters and has been scaled to be fabricated in one piece on a 5 inch diameter silicon wafer. Pixel size is 8.75 by 8.75 microns which gives 57 lp/mm resolution. The detector array features a two frame per second readout capability which allows collection of stereo imagery from very high V/H platforms. Image Motion Compensation is achieved by operating the frame readout clocks during the exposure interval in typical TDI fashion. The high geometric accuracy of pixel placement on the array yields a camera suitable for mapping, reconnaissance, space and astronomy applications. In this paper, measured detector array performance, detector array yield and overall camera performance are presented.
