Abstract
Recently the British have unveiled details of a new Mercury Cadmium Telluride (HgCdTd) "SPRITE" detector that performs time delay and integration within the material itself. The detector has been applied to a new serial/parallel TV compatible high performance thermal imager, the IR-18. This paper introduces the concept of the SPRITE detector and analyzes and explains its unique features. It then describes how the detector is applied to the IR-18. A video tape or movie will be shown of IR-18 imagery with afocal telescopes having different magnifications. The IR-l8 is currently manufactured by Barr & Stroud Ltd, Glasgow, Scotland. Magnavox is the exclusive distributor in the U.S.
