Paper Abstract

This paper presents the design of HGH Systemes Infrarouges newest infrared search and track (IRST) sensor. The system incorporates a number of advanced features to achieve compact size and long detection range while maintaining a low price in comparison with previous IRST shipborne systems developed. The sensor houses a high sensitivity long wave infrared (LWIR) CMOS photovoltaic HgCdTe 288 x 4 element focal plane array coupled to a high reliability and long lifetime Stirling cycle cooler. Some of the system key features include: athermalized and gyro-stabilized f/l optics, built-in nonuniformity correction assembly, 12-bit real time digital data output and RS-422 interface for remote control capability.
