Paper Abstract

The Compact InfraRed Camera (CIRC) is a technology-demonstration payload to be carried on the Small Demonstration Satellite type-2 (SDS-2). The SDS program is a JAXA activity to demonstrate a variety of new technologies and new missions. The CIRC is an infrared camera equipped with an uncooled infrared array detector (microbolometer). The mission of the SDS-2/CIRC project is to demonstrate the potential of the microbolometer, especially for wildfire detection but also for other applications. This paper introduces the detailed design and concept of CIRC. We also discuss preliminary results of the feasibility study on wildfire detection using thermal infrared images.
