Paper Abstract

Developments are described in the design and manufacture of full 512 X 512 infra-red scene projector (IRSP) systems, as well as in a high complexity demonstrator program to realize 1024 X 1024 complexity. Design aspects include choice of drive circuit, the suspended resistor pixel design factors, the choice of busbar configurations, and the optimization of emissivity coatings. Design of the peripheral drive systems for the 512 system is outlined, and progress on manufacture reported. Development plans for the provision of suitable high complexity computer scene generation is outlined.
