Paper Abstract

EEV has been in the business of uncooled thermal imaging for the last 20 years. The success of the pyroelectric vidicon, in particular in the Fire Service Camera, has highlighted the potential market for affordable thermal imaging systems. To exploit this market, EEV has in advanced development room temperature staring focal plane arrays of thermal detectors. This type of sensor will produce good quality thermal images at a fraction of the cost of current cooled systems, without the attendant logistic problem of cooling.
