An advanced Image Sensor Module (ISM) has been designed, fabricated and tested at CAI, a Division of RECON/OPTICAL, INC. under internal R & D funding. This electronic assembly has been specifically designed for Electro-Optical (1E-0) imaging from very high-performance, Long Range Oblique Photography (LOROP) cameras. It includes the digital and analog electronics required to interface the CAI proprietary CAS-6254 detector to the rest of the E-O electronics in a real-time system. The ISM mounts as a Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) at the focal plane of either a pod-mounted or internally mounted camera. It is used as either a dedicated E-O or Shared Focal Plane (SFP) configuration. Principal features include remote programmability, modular electronics, thermal management via liquid cooling, and an athermal mechanical interface for focus alignment repeatability. Remote programmability of all required clocks and biases facilitates flightline alignment and calibration during preflight checkout. Built-In Testing (BIT) is used for failure detection and fault isolation. The principal design considerations, construction, performance and maintainability are discussed, and hardware photographs and performance data are presented.
