SCD's new 17μm pitch VGA VOx μ-Bolometer detector was introduced in April 2010. Due to their overall size, weight and power advantages, 17μm pitch uncooled detectors are currently being considered for next generation systems such as thermal weapon sights (TWS), driver vision enhancers (DVE) and digitally fused goggles (DENVG). In this paper we describe a new video engine developed at SCD to support the new 17μm pitch VGA detector. First, the modular design concept of the hardware for the new video engine is described. This is followed by a description of the software design concept, including features that emphasize the open architecture and the provision for a customer to add on his own algorithms and software. The detector and the engine are on low rate production these days. Full production is planned for Q4/2010.
