Abstract
The major defence systems companies have been expending considerable effort on the development of thermal imaging and sensing systems technologies for use in the military field for many years. Major efforts have been made to spin-off low cost variants of the technology into the civil market sector with varying degrees of success. IRISYS have approached the civil market opportunity from a different perspective. The company has developed an inherently low cost technology with the objective of achieving a low cost imaging sensor. The achievement of the low price for civil sensing applications is by use of a detector technology that is optimized for the very high volume detection market. The paper reviews the detector technology, design methodologies and implementation of low cost thermal detection and imaging products.
