Abstract:

The technology of four differing approaches to the development of integrated, staring focal plane arrays operating in the infrared regime for application on a small tactical missile are reviewed. Monolithic and hybrid architectures are included with both CCD and CID charge transfer processors. Arrays of both intrinsic and extrinsic detector materials are included. The relative merits of these design choices are presented. Each of four designs is shown to provide potentially satisfactory performance with the selection of a preferred design dependent on the outcome of field tests scheduled for late 1980. Author
