2 June 1989 Demonstration Of An Optically-Butted Infrared Sensor
Author Affiliations +
A relatively low cost and low technical risk method has been demonstrated for optically abutting mosaic detector arrays to achieve very large staring sensor focal plane assemblies. A recent demonstration of this technology achieved 0.15 pixel registration of two mosaic infrared arrays operating at 50°K. DBA has patented this technology (Patent No. 4634882, trade name RIMSTAR) and has applied it to a proof of principle infrared staring sensor which is designated IRX.
