Paper Abstract

Military applications for conventional InGaAs SWIR sensing have been limited by the requirement of thermoelectric cooler (TEC) temperature stabilization for nonuniformity correction (NUC). TEC operation restricts the operating temperature range and size, weight, and power (SWAP) of these systems. For battery-powered man portable and micro UAV applications elimination of the TEC is critical. This paper discusses the advantages of our non-TEC temperature parameterized NUC corrections algorithms versus TEC stabilized architectures. The corrections algorithms enable performance-tuned polynomial order correction of both pixel uniformity and temperature parameterization for each SWIR sensor. These advances enable SWIR InGaAs sensing to meet the SWAP requirements of next generation military applications.
