Paper Abstract

With the introduction of the Inframetrics InfraCAM, a new standard is established for small, lightweight, low power, hand- held, high sensitivity, high resolution thermal imaging systems. A unique design approach to video processing as well as the compact and efficient Inframetrics patented Sterling cycle microcooler allow the unit to require less than 5 watts of power during operation. The unit is smaller than most commercially available `palm-corders' with both the sensor and processing electronics housed in the same package. This paper reviews both the architecture and performance of our 256 X 256 platinum silicide array based imager.
