Paper Abstract

A new gimbal-based, FLIR camera for several types of airborne platforms has been developed. The FLIR is based on a PtSi on silicon technology: developed for high volume and minimum cost. The gimbal scans an area of 360 degrees in azimuth and an elevation range of plus 15 degrees to minus 105 degrees. It is stabilized to 25 (mu) Rad-rms. A combination of uniformity correction, defect substitution, and compact optics results in a long range, low cost FLIR for all low-speed airborne platforms.
