Abstract
Meeting the stringent requirements of astronomy provides some of the most difficult and interesting challenges to the infrared industry. This paper evaluates InSb array performance, compares this performance with astronomy requirements, and predicts what could be available before the end of this century. Technology trends in infrared arrays for astronomical applications are analyzed to stimulate development in the industry and to assist astronomers in planning future instruments.
