Paper Abstract

This paper describes the UL3 camera system based on the advanced 160 X 128 uncooled micro-bolometer FPA. The UL3 camera takes advantage of the patented bias equalization FPA performance techniques to produce the world's smallest IR camera. The UL3 camera weights less than 2.3 ounces, uses less than 600 mW of power, and has overall dimensions of 3 cm X 3 cm X 6 cm. The architectures feature an approach that integrates the required system functions on ASICs and FPGAs rather than including discrete components and microprocessors.
