Fiscal Year: 2012
Title: Advanced Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Strained Layer Superlattice Detectors on Digital-Pixel Readout Integrated Circuits
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0147-12-C-7188
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

We propose to combine QmagiQ's strained layer superlattice (SLS) sensor technology with MIT Lincoln Laboratory's novel digital pixel readout integrated circuit (DROIC) to realize an advanced longwave infrared digital focal plane array (DFPA) with high quantum efficiency, dynamic range, and operating temperature. In Phase I, we will develop the SLS DFPA. In Phase II, we will optimize the DFPA, integrate it into a full-fledged surveillance system, and test it in the field. It's field performance will be directly compared to an identical system with a mercury cadmium telluride FPA.
