Paper Abstract

As the temporal NETD of TI imaging systems decreases attention increasingly turns to the uniformity of the presented imagery. This uniformity begins to limit the ultimate recognition and identification ranges of the system. This is true both of staring arrays and long linear detector based systems. This paper discusses the design, implementation and integration of a very high performance non-uniformity correction approach within the STAIRS C production SXGA resolution camera and presents preliminary findings.
