The LSST project has embarked on an aggressive new program to develop the next generation of silicon imagers for the visible and near-IR spectral regions. In order to better understand and solve some of the technology issues prior to development and mass-production for the huge LSST focal plane, a number of contracts have been written to imager firms to explore specific areas of technology uncertainty. We expect that these study contracts will do much toward reducing risk and uncertainty going into the next phase of development, the prototype production of the final large LSST imager.
