Paper Abstract

Mission requirements for mini RPV's are given which set the boundary conditions for electro-optical sensor operation. Sensor performance goals are postulated and from these objectives a class of sensor is identified. These include high performance thermal imaging and silicon television as well as more austere intensified solid state imagers and pyroelectric vidicons. Current development status and improvements for these devices is forecast. Finally some system design features are given for various stabilization schemes.
