Abstract:

The research and development proposed here will examine using sparse-linear-detector-array configurations to lower the power consumption of personnel detection sensors. Plasmonics will design and test a bread board LWIR pyroelectric sensor to show that detector arrays with sufficient sensitivity to meet the application needs can be built. Optical systems that can reliably detect and classify humans out to a range of 300 m will also be designed to establish feasibility. The goal of the project is to create a sparse detector array that can achieve sufficient range and resolution to detect and classify humans without the need for a power consuming ROIC. Packaging of such a detector array will be designed and investigated in Phase I.
