Paper Abstract

Recent advances in technology, in particular monolithic detector arrays, make it possible to detect and track aircraft from space. A number of options and trade-offs are discussed and a baseline concept of step-stare infrared sensors is described which performs both search and track over wide areas. Phenomenological modeling and technology advances needed for further sensor optimization are discussed.
