Paper Abstract

A high resolution, serial scan, thermal imager which is based upon a new compact video optical scanner and the SPRITE (Signal Processing In The Element) detector is described. The scanning principle is briefly reviewed, and the 8-12 μm SPRITE detector configuration characteristics are summarized. An electronic system is used to control the scan drives and to process the video for RS 170 compatibility. Finally, the performance of the system is defined by such figures of merit as NEAT and MRAT.
