Paper Abstract

"Since the mid 1970's focal plane array technologies have been investigated to develop prototypes for a new generation of high sensitivity infra red equipements such as thermal imaging and surveillance systems and missile seekers. These technologies involve to use new design rules in the system conceptiontrade off between state of the art in detector and processing electronic technology, optics, cryogenic and mecanical constraints should be made. In this paper we develop our ideas on system design using focal plane arrays both in 3-5 microns and in 8-10 microns wavelength ranges : focal plane architectural design (scanning versus starring), new optical concept to reduce the backround photon flux, frame averager, digital or analog signal processing in image restoration. Some examples based on our experiences in this field are given".
