Abstract
The present state of the art in scientific InSb focal plane arrays is defined by the Santa Barbara Research Center (SBRC) 256x256 device. In this paper we will discuss the status of the USNO-NOAO 1024x1024 focal plane development effort at SBRC. The project is in its ealy phases, and so this report consists of the device description, design goals, testing plans, and schedule. Drivers for even larger IR arrays include plans for large (8 meter class) telescopes, high resolution spectroscopy, astrometry of large fields, and wide field imaging amongst others. Focal planes of 640x480 have already been demonstrated, and so the step up to 124x1024 seems reasonable at this time.
