We present results from our testing of near infrared APD arrays from SELEX ES. We discuss the non-linear behaviour of these devices and compare to mathematical models which show good agreement with our experimental data. We also discuss some other non-ideal characteristics we have encountered. Finally, we describe a compact detector system designed as an easily deployable demonstrator for on-sky testing.
