Paper Abstract

An experimental prototype of new generation infra-'red devices has been realized. Sensitive in the 8 to 10 microns wavelength band, its design coithines electronical scanning in the horizontal direction (1,024 eleraent IR Charge Transfer Device Focal Plane Array) and a simple opto-mechanical scanning in the vertical direc- tion (only one frame mirror). Images are displayed in the framework of present TV standard. Thanks to its large versatility, such a design is able to cope with any image requirement (interlaced or not, HDTV, . . . ) by electroni- cal control. Ranges are typically improved by j2 with respect to those of today high performance FLIRs.
