New generations of InfraRed (IR) detectors are mature and well within the production stage at Sofradir. The two generations consist of Time Delay and Integration (TDI) long linear arrays (for second generation systems) sensitive in the 8-12 micrometers waveband and large 2D staring arrays (for second or third generation systems) sensitive in the 3-5 micrometers and 8-12 micrometers wavebands. Outstanding progress has been made in product development and production assessment during these last 10 years at Sofradir and the key points for technologies and products are presented as well as lessons learned.
