This paper describes parallel-scan thermal imagers based on cooled MCT detectors operating in the 8- to 12-μm band. A line of unclassified commercially available imagers are shown. Equations for predicting the detection and recognition ranges are given, based on the U.S. Army Night Vision Laborator (NVL) performance model.
