Innovative detector sampling and sensor scanning concepts are presented for reducing the signal bandwidths in non-imaging infrared sensors. The use of these concepts can significantly reduce the data rates in the interconnect cables between the detector focal plane and its associated signal conditioning circuits. The data rate reduction is achieved with only a minimal loss of performance.
