Paper Abstract

McQ Associates, Inc. has worked on a number of efforts to develop practical, fieldable infrared imaging systems which are intended to be used as an integral part of low power remote sensor and surveillance systems. Recent efforts contributing to such an integrated system have been funded through the Office of Naval Research, the U.S. Army Picatinny Arsenal, and the Air Force Research Lab in Rome, NY. The efforts have culminated in developing a digital signal processor based platform capable of detecting, tracking, and extracting multiple targets within either a 360 degree or fixed field of view. This paper discusses the challenges in the developments of such a sensor, focusing on extending achieving reasonable operating ranges, achieving low power, lowering size and cost, and applications for this technology.
