The present status of SOFRADIR IRFPA technology is briefly reviewed. Sensitive arrays, readout circuits, interconnections, and dewar technologies are examined. Typical SOFRADIR products are listed, and production of these products is discussed, including the production center, production equipment, test equipment, and production yield. A manufacturing flow chart is shown.
