Paper Abstract

The paper presents some aspects of muzzle flash detection using low resolution polycrystalline PbSe uncooled 32×32 detectors array. This system for muzzle flash detection works in MWIR (3 - 5 microns) region and it is based on VPD (Vapor Phase Deposition) technology. The low density uncooled 32×32 array is suitable for being used in low cost IR imagers sensitive in the MWIR band with frame rates exceeding 1.000 Hz. The FPA detector, read-out electronics and processing electronics (allowing the implementation of some algorithms for muzzle flash detection) has been presented. The system has been tested at field test ground. Results of detection range measurement with two types of optical systems (wide and narrow field of view) have been shown. The initial results of testing of some algorithms for muzzle flash detection have been also presented.
