18 May 1988 Very Large Optically Butted Infrared Staring Sensor
Author Affiliations +
A relatively low cost and low technical risk method has been developed for optically butting mosaic detector arrays to achieve very large focal plane assemblies. This method is being developed for infrared staring sensor applications which may require as many as 108 pixels in the focal plane. The method is applicable with virtually any detector array type or size. This patented technology (Patent No. 4634882, trade named RIMSTAR) is being applied to a proof of principle infrared staring sensor which is designated IRX.
