The objective of this proposal is to eliminate reliance on integrated non-uniformity correction hardware in electro-optical/ infrared (EO/IR) sensors to reduce sensor size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), simplify maintenance and integration, and streamline mission continuity of operations. The Digital-pixel Readout Integrated Circuits (DROIC) is an enabling technology for future sensors built for low SWaP and high performance. Digital-Pixel Focal Plane Arrays (DFPA) achieve dramatic reductions in system size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) through on-chip digital processing capabilities.
