Paper Abstract

An advanced charged coupled device (CCD) reconnaissance detector has been designed, fabricated and integrated into several focal plane array (FPA) configurations. ICAS-625 4 is optimized for real-time, long-range, oblique reconnaissance (LOROP) applications. Its features include a small pixel size, high saturation level, variable length time delay and integrate (TDI) operation, high line rate, integrated support electronics and buttable ends. The device offers improvements to currently available devices by virtue of its 11- μ m pixel size, burst ripple TDI operation and eight selectable TDI lengths between I and 64. The 24-mm chip has buttable ends to facilitate the fabrication of long FPA's with less than 3 missing pixels across each gap. The design criteria, architecture, fabrication details and performance are presented along with sample imagery taken by the device.
