17 July 2000 QWIP sensors in military applications
Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses the different detector and systems technologies available today and in the near future, and how they measure up to these requirements. It is concluded that the only affordable alternative today and within the next ten years is QWIP technology. A system based on a Swedish developed and manufactured 320 X 240 QWIP has been demonstrated in the field. This and examples of other systems under development are presented.
