Paper Abstract

Modeling of Schottky barrier focal plane arrays (FPAs) is relatively new as is the tactical use of these arrays. Only limited data sets are available for model validation. Available data have been used to develop and validate an MRT model including noise calculations. The primary area of concern is the MRT equation, which is also true for scanning sensors. However, it is believed that the causes for discrepancies between the model and the data are different from those for scanning sensors. This paper provides a brief description of Schottky barrier FPAs and their potential tactical applications, and then discusses some of the available performance data. The model description shows calculated performance compared to measured performance including a discussion of questionable areas.
