Paper Abstract

MCT technologies under development in France address strategic operational needs. This includes better identification range as well as lighter weight requirement, operation at higher detector temperature and cost reduction issues. This paper describes the status of MCT IR technology in France at Leti and Sofradir. A focus will be made on hot detector technology for SWAP applications. Solutions for high performance detectors such as dual bands or megapixels will be discussed. In the meantime, the development of avalanche photodiodes, integrated optics, or TV format with digital interface is key to bring customers cutting-edge functionalities.
