Paper Abstract

Modem infrared technology can now offer the interceptor or air superiority fighter pilot the dual advantage of a "passive radar" for target search and track, combined in the same conformal package with an imaging FLIR for navigation and landing aid. This paper describes the key design issues and traces the steps in the design process of a multimode combined IRST/FLIR sensor for airborne use.
