Paper Abstract

The status of development of resistor-array infra-red scene projector devices at BAE SYSTEMS is that two variants of a 512 X 512 array have each been brought to a second development stage, whilst work on higher complexity arrays is slow but purposeful. In this paper we describe the latest features of the 512 arrays, exhibiting on the one hand high fidelity performance through a ballast-load configuration, and on the other hand very high apparent temperature output, coupled with high speed performance. For higher complexity arrays we describe some of the system philosophy and preliminary design work.
