Paper Abstract

MITSUBISHI THERMAL IMAGER model IR-5120A is high resolution and high sensitivity infrared television imaging system. It was exhibited in SPIE'S 1988 Technical Symposium on OPTICS, ELECTRO-OPTICS, and SENSORS, held at April 1988 Orlando, and acquired interest of many attendants of the symposium for it's high performance. The detector is a Platinium Silicide Charge Sweep Device (CSD) array containing more than 260,000 individual pixels manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Co. The IR-5120A consists of a Camera Head. containing the CSD, a stirling cycle cooler and support electronics, and a Camera Control Unit containing the pixel fixed pattern noise corrector, video controllor, cooler driver and support power supplies. The stirling cycle cooler built into the Camera Head is used for keeping CSD temperature of approx. 80K with the features such as light weight, long life of more than 2000 hours and low acoustical noise. This paper describes an improved Thermal Imager, with more light weight, compact size and higher performance, and it's design philosophy, characteristics and field image.
