Paper Abstract

DRS Sensors & Targeting Systems, under contract to the Space Dynamics Laboratory of Utah State University, is providing the focal plane detector system for NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The focal plane detector system consists of two mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) focal plane module assemblies (FPMAs), two arsenic doped silicon (Si:As) Blocked Impurity Band (BIB) FPMAs, electronics to drive the FPMAs and report digital data from them, and the cryogenic and ambient temperature cabling that connect the FPMAs and electronics. The MCT and Si:As BIB focal plane arrays (FPAs) utilized in the WISE FPMAs are both megapixel class indium-bump hybridized devices fabricated by Teledyne Imaging Systems and DRS Sensors & Targeting Systems, respectively. This paper reports performance of the WISE Si:As BIB FPAs that are used for the WISE 12- and 23-μm wavelength bands.
