Paper Abstract

This paper presents alignment test results and scene simulator imagery of a 1 x 1280 element, linear assembly comprised of 5 end-butted modules. Each module consists of a silicon read-out chip, a 256 element, photovoltaic, HgCdTe detector array and a silicon/sapphire carrier. Resistance Area (RnAi) products of 4.2 x 105 ohm-cm2 were achieved with the Lift; short-wave (Ac = 2.42 pm), HgCdTe detector array operating at 145K. A detector spacing of 30 μm and an optical area of 23 x 23 μm2 were used. The modules were end-butted with a loss of 4 60μm (4 1 pixel missing) at the butt joints. Sensor components are described and radiometric test results are summarized. Test assembly alignment verification and scene simulation are emphasized.
