Paper Abstract

Multispectral imaging is a well accepted technique for object discrimination. Hyperspectral imaging can result in highly complex optical systems that have frame rate limitations. For fast frame rate applications, dual band imaging can provide sufficient discrimination without sacrificing signal to noise ratio. The design of a fast frame rate (> 200 Hz) SWIR/MWIR and MWIR/LWIR camera is described. Two strategies for cooling the array are explored.
