Paper Abstract

SOFRADIR is one of the leading companies worldwide for the production of second-generation InfraRed (IR) detectors based on more than 10,000 Time Delay and Integration (TDI) array deliveries up to date! This success is mainly due to the top quality of the unique and production oriented French HgCdTe technology for manufacturing InfraRed Focal Plane Arrays (IRFPA). Although it is easy to get an image with 2D staring arrays in comparison with TDI linear arrays, it is more difficult to answer the full system needs in terms of high performances in very tough environmental conditions. However, cooled 2D arrays are more and more used in both IR medium and long wavebands for many different applications and SOFRADIR has moved to large quantity production for 2.5 generation IR detectors (320×256 format) since 2001. Then different technologies are available for answering LW staring arrays needs and SOFRADIR offers a large range of IR staring arrays for LW applications.
