Currently advanced MWIR camera systems’ shortcomings are related to 1) their high cost and being proprietary to large aerospace companies, 2) their compromise on power or frame rate, and 3) their compromise on noise and well capacity as the pixel pitch goes down and the array size is increased. This paper presents a novel low SWAP-C commercially available high-end MWIR camera system development. The camera incorporates a 10-micron pitch MWIR FPA with a 3- megapixel array size read out at full motion video rate, and even up to 90Hz rate. The small pitch sensor has various gain modes up to 20 million-electron well capacity as well as low noise at high readout rates delivering full 14-bit performance.
