The objective of the program described here is to arrive at the optimum characteristics for an agile step-stare IR sensor with a given performance. The resulting optimized design depends upon technology projections, cost models, and fundamental formulas relating the various sensor cnrocterastics to the sensor performance. Since the projections, models and formulas are approximate the resulting sensor design is also approximate. In addition to establishing approximate point designs and technology requirements, the purpose of this program is also to provide an objective basis for comparing competing concepts and assessing- the payoffs associated with various technology development programs.
