Paper Abstract

1.1, The Staring Array Imaging System RSRE and Mullard have been developing 8-12um 2-D Cadmium Mercury Telluride (CMT) detector arrays for several years. More recently 3-5um CCD 2D CMT arrays have also become available. RSRE amd Marconi Command and Control Systems (MCCS) have developed an experimental modular staring array thermal imaging sytem (MIDGE). This imager can be used to evaluate the performance of the various array formats now availabe and also used to try out different image processing techniques. The imager will accept all the now currently available formats and is capable of expansion to 256 x 256 elements. It is computer controlled and linear calibration non uniformity correction is applied to all detectors at the frame rate. Images can be transferred to another computer, processing is done to 16 bits, with 12 bits output, and 8 bits display.
