A review is made of infrared (IR) sensor technologies for spaceborne surveillance applications. Particular emphasis will be made on the status of short wavelength IR (SWIR), medium wavelength IR (MWIR) and long wavelength IR (LWIR) materials, detector arrays and readout electronics, specially developed for acquisition and tracking. Included in the review are extrinsic silicon detectors for space surveillance, Pt/Si, InSb, PbS, HgCdTe and PbSe for missile surveillance, planar hybrid and Z-geometry hybrid focal plane architectures for configuring large IR sensors, and scene generator technology for sensor verification and validation.
