Paper Abstract

Fast scan infrared imaging devices present a flickerfree or continuous image to the eye. Theoretical performance limits are presented for these systems operating in the 3 to 5-μm and 8 to 11-μm spectral bands. Efficiency factors for available systems are given, which match the observed performance to the theoretically limited performance. The improvement in Minimum Detectable Temperature attainable with conventional frame integration techniques is shown.
