Abstract
Analytical results are presented showing improved detection and location performance in a staring sensor using a hexagonal detector array or having the capability to adjust the size of its blur spot (variable focus). Square and hexagonal detector arrays are compared for detection probability versus focus, for location accuracy versus focus and signal-to-noise ratio, and for location accuracy versus blur size and detector array fill factor.
