Paper Abstract

Recent advances in the state of the art of IR imaging have made it possible to provide ultra-long range detection, recognition, and identification performance with small, low cost, yet rugged camera systems. As the trend in IR technology has moved toward larger format uncooled microbolometers, BAE Systems has developed a PMC300TM camera system based on a 640x480 uncooled microbolometer detector. The system is capable of detecting humans at distances in excess of 4km, has a sensitivity of better than 50mK, is compact, has low power consumption, quick start times and can operate in desert and polar climates. This paper will discuss the PMCTM performance capabilities, design considerations, design improvements, and its varied applications.
