Paper Abstract

In next generation earth observation satellites the spectral bands will extend from visible over near infrared to far infrared wavelengths. To improve the system's sensitivity and the geometrical resolution the detector focal plane array (FPA) will be provided with a few thousands of detectors. The favourite candidate material for the (8-12) μm-atmospheric window is CMT. Its performance requires detector temperatures of 77 K and, because of the large number of detectors, signalpreprocessing located in the FPA. The signal readout procedure can be carried out via Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs).
