Paper Abstract

Earth observation satellites will use linear arrays of a few thousands of pv-CMT-detectors combined with CCDs to scan the surface in the (8-12) μm spectral range in the pushbroom principle. The hybrid approach of large CMT-IRCCDs is based on butting small entities of CMT-submodules with CCD-signalprocessors. According to the high photon background charge suppression techniques have to be implemented in the detector-CCD coupling circuit. CMT-IRCCD engineering models are manufactured, electro-optical results are presented.
