Paper Abstract

This paper presents a brief overview of military infrared sensors development and delivery in France in the 1995-2005 period. We first enumerate a number of weapons systems already in service or to be delivered before 2005. This part will show the increasing number of military equipment using infrared focal plane arrays. Then we present some examples of research initiatives sponsored by the French Ministry of Defense. By the end we mention the main research directions for the years to come.
