A mosaic detector array which uses a charge coupled array to integrate and multiplex signals is significantly limited by charge saturation. Detection of warm targets by infrared sensing through the atmosphere tends to be limited more by clutter than by random fluctuations. For missions at television frame rates the important attributes of the detector array are good spatial resolution and uniformity of response. Responsive quantum efficiency is relatively unimportant. Operation at 3 to 4.2 μm offers advantages of resolution and larger rate of change of radiant signal with temperature.
