Paper Abstract

This presentation looks back over this last twenty years, the French activity in IR detectors. Photon and thermal detectors, cooled and uncooled focal plane arrays are considered. Two specific experiences are described on Automation Home IR Systems and Earth horizon IR sensing for Space Applications. The discussion is focussed on low cost devices and perspectives which are to be open in obstacle detection for Automotive Applications.
