Abstract : This report summarizes experiments carried out at Rome Laboratory (RL) under a Laboratory Director Funds (LDF) effort. Experiments were carried out at both SCITEC and RL in conjunction with the Intelligence and Reconnaissance Directorate and the Photonics Center. Experimental results are described regarding the sensitivity and noise characteristics of commercially available mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) detectors and preamps. Also presented are some measurements of potential ways to reject false alarms. Intelligence and Reconnaissance, mercury cadmium telluride (MCT).
