Eleven years ago I edited Vol. 2, No. 1, of the SPIE Journal (now Optical Engineering), under the title "Infrared Today & Tomorrow." In it I summarized the state-of-the-art of civilian and military infrared technology and ended by stating, "In the future the development of imaging systems which will produce a visible picture of objects sensed only by their infrared energy is anticipated. This will permit the use of photographic instrumentation techniques in connec-tion with systems analyses and data recording activities...," and ". . . the equivalent of television based on IR content." We also (see McFee, op. cit., p. 16) predicted, ". . . the develop ment of techniques to build preamplifiers in juxtaposition to detector elements . . .," and ". . microelectric fabrication techniques . . . to include detector elements in a single package with the electronic circuits."
