Abstract:

A single cell, serially scanned, thermal imaging FLIR system has been constructed. The system consisted of a Cassegrain type reflecting telescope with a convergent beam, oscillating mirror scan system and HgCdTe and InSb single cell infrared detectors. The system was first tested using visible light and then switched to the infrared wavelengths. The FLIR has imaged scenes with a temperature difference of 9 K above ambient. MTF measurements have shown it to be diffraction limited by the active area of the detector crystal and the optics.
