Paper Abstract

We have developed a smart CCD image sensor/readout with on chip analog processors. CCD signal processors are used with the PtSi detectors on the FPA to process image data. This smart CCD image sensor/readout has the advantages of CCD technology, i.e. low noise floor, 80 - 100 dB dynamic range as well as image readout through an array of analog (column) processors to perform parallel image processing operations. Each processor can implement firmware programmable functions such as: bi-directional, multiple color and IR, time delay and integrate function (TDI), region of interest windowing, transversal (temporal) and spatial filtering, background subtraction, exposure control and thresholding. The developed sensor is suitable for RECCE, and laser radar applications.
