Paper Abstract

In the past two years, IRCCD staring sensor technology has advanced to where, except for resolution, performance is comparable with scanning sensor technology. In this paper, we discuss the signal processing requirements for Schottky IRCCD sensors and describe a real time digital Schottky IRCCD image processor. This processor conditions the raw Schottky IRCCD data to standard composite video output and provides first order correction of sensor nonuniformity, optical shading and background suppression. The processor design is based on simple low cost circuitry which can be expanded to meet the support requirements for future Schottky IRCCD focal planes which have pixel counts approaching standard visible television resolu-tion. Examples of real-time processed thermal images will be shown.
