Last year we have introduced the development program of SCD's 17μm pitch VGA VOx μ-Bolometer detector (1). Due to the overall size, weight and power advantages the 17μm pitch is currently being considered for the next generation systems such as thermal weapon sights (TWS), driver vision enhancers (DVE) and digitally fused goggles (DENVG). In the first part of this paper we will discuss in detail the performance of this detector. Specifically, we will elaborate on the radiometric results, ROIC performance and operability. Detailed measurements for a wide temperature range will be presented as well. In the second part, we will describe some new capabilities and features that are enabled by the advanced 0.18um VLSI technology. These features will be embedded in new products that are currently under development.
