Paper Abstract

Environmental conditions (thermal, vibrations and shocks) are key performance and reliability factors for designing IR detectors. To address these constraints Sofradir has developed specific concepts to make the IR detector more robust in stringent environmental conditions. This paper describes these design concepts that involve both the IRFPA (IR Focal Plane Array) and the cryogenics part, as well as the level of robustness that is achieved.
