Paper Abstract

Two dimensional solid-state pyroelectric (PE) arrays permit infrared detection and imaging in the 8 to 12 micron region without cryogenic cooling. Studies predict that a TV compatible PE camera should have a performance that is comparable to that specified for a military, man-portable IR Common Module system. A camera with a 32 x 32 element solid state array is being built to confirm these predictions. The detector array and camera are described and the results to date presented.
