Paper Abstract

Recently the British have unveiled details of a new Mercury Cadmium Telluride (HgCdTe) "SPRITE" detector that performs time delay and integration within the material itself. This paper presents the concept of the SPRITE detector and analyzes and explains its unique features as applied to commercially available systems. Finally, announcement is made of a new generation of closed-cycle linear resonant cryogenic coolers for infrared systems with a unique guaranteed 2500 hours MTBF.
