Abstract:

The investigations and analyses performed during the course of this program lead to the following conclusions A 3 - 5 micrometer, TE cooled IR system can be built using on focal plane CCD electronic processing technology, to yield high performance Using CCDs, large arrays of detectors can be used which require few output leads from the dewar, thus decreasing mechanical complexity and heat loads PbSe, because of its high impedance makes an ideal detector to interface with CCDs with several input scheme possibilities A parallel scan system is used to conserve bandwidth and optimize scan efficiency Individual row detector signals are delayed and added to reduce the requirements on the output shift register and background suppression The requirements of the guidelines system can be achieved using a 540 element PbSe array A family of systems, using modular techniques and high density array TE detectors can be built to meet a multiplicity of applications.
