Paper Abstract

Small, lightweight, high-performance, IR camera systems are desirable for UAV payloads and similar tactical environments. This paper discusses a mid-wave infrared camera specified for imaging in the broad band region from 3.0 to 5.0 micrometers . The camera has demonstrated excellent night and thermal vision in a multitude of conditions including penetration through adverse weather and over water.
