Paper Abstract

High resolution imaging is an important aspect of imaging in missile applications especially for automated target recognition and tracking. However it is not without its negative aspects. For similar detector size, increase in the resolution is only possible with decrease in pixel pitch which results a smaller detection area which translates to longer detection ranges. Binning is a relatively mature feature for silicon detectors used for obtaining better signal to noise ratio. In this study; a similar concept is proposed for MWIR detectors with emphasis on security related properties such as detection range and performance of an autonomous/semi-autonomous electro-optical system. The analysis and simulations has been performed for a fixed sample with predefined optical and electrical properties for noise and signal models for the clarity of the subject.
