Paper Abstract

The intent of this paper is to suggest to the electro-optic design community that recent technological advances in thermal detector focal planes have increased the attraction of IR staring arrays as contrasted to the widespread utilization of mechanically scanned arrays. Following a brief overview of both scanning and staring imaging concepts, a variety of IR imaging scenarios are used to compare these two approaches.
