Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the Navy program for infrared focal plane array (IR FPA) development and some problems involved in the development of high performance IR FPAs for several advanced infrared sensors. Emphasis is placed on specific IR FPA technologies currently being developed as part of the Navy Program. Issues involved in the determination of array specifications are demonstrated using a parametric analysis of performance predictions for an advanced staring sensor. The analysis includes consideration of system design parameters such as IFOV, FPA noise and uniformity, clutter rejection and signal filtering.
