Pagination or Media Count:
Lockheed Martin is presently manufacturing imaging systems having greater than 640 x 480 resolution utilizing the MWIR technologies Platinum Silicide and Indium Antimonide. This paper identifies key operational characteristics of these focal plane array technologies including readout rate, readout architecture, and performance parameters such as quantum efficiency, nonuniformity, and MTF. System performance measurements on camera systems based on these two infrared technologies is presented including nonuniformity correction and stability, noise equivalent temperature and MTF.
