Abstract
In recent years, CEDIP has designed and produced several imaging systems using MCT-FPA from SOFRADIR. From the simple 64 element linear array to the advanced 128 by 128 LWIR matrix, a large amount of expertise has been gained in the design of advanced electronic modules and optics. The purpose of this paper is to present some of the technical solutions and basic concepts defined and used by CEDIP's engineers during the design phase. Performance data about the commercially available Peltier cooled IRFPA camera, based on these design concepts, also is given.
