Focal plane arrays technologies are now ready for use in infrared equipment such as thermal imagers, surveillance systems, missiles seekers and optoelectronic countermeasures. In this paper we review the differents technologies developped during the next past years and we compare them to define their range of application. These technologies involve to modify the system design to optimise the trade off between caracteristics of the detector and the other parts : optics, cryogeny, optomechanical subassembly, electronic and signal processing. We discuss this impact on other technologies and techniques (eg. Silicon Technology, IR image processing,) to realise the new generation of IR systems.
