The new technologies embodied in the Teal Ruby Experiment are surveyed to illustrate how the sensor represents much more than a new detector art. It is indicated that, as in all such multidimensional advances, much accommodation is inevitable among the competing design elements, requiring continuing systems engineering attention. The Teal Ruby Experiment is emerging as a significant benchmark in sensor design (see Figure 1).
