Paper Abstract

New generation tactical air vehicles now in the planning stage are calling for high performance real-time Infra-red sensors with very wide fields of view combined with small size low weight and low cost. British Aerospace have addressed these requirements with the B.Ae. 4000, 2000 and 1000 Infrared linescanners. The first of these, the 4000, will enter Royal Air Force Service shortly in the Tornado Multi Role Aircraft. This paper describes these sensors together with some of the operational parameters which they are now called upon to meet for Service in the 1990s.
