Abstract
Uncooled microbolometer detector development has made significant progress within the past two years. Starting in June 1994, Amber fabricated a custom readout IC, and began the concurrent development of a hand held LWIR camera. This paper reviews the camera design, camera electronics, and packaging considerations. In addition system performance including NETD, MRTD, and corrected nonuniformity data will be presented.
