Paper Abstract

The InfraRed staring arrays are more and more compact and offer system solutions in the different IR wavebands. The HgCdTe (Mercury Cadmium Telluride / MCT) material and process, as well as the hybridization technology, have been taken to an even more advanced level of sophistication to achieve these new staring arrays high performances. Latest developments allow progress at different stages of products offered by SOFRADIR. Uniformity of Focal Plan Arrays (FPA) is improved, read-out circuits propose new functions as the analogic to digital conversion, and the reliability of the whole dewar detector and cooler assembly is increased. New products take advantages on these progresses. In mid-wave (MWIR), 1280x1024 MCT detector available in a tactical dewar is presented.
