Abstract
This proposal addresses the need for a flexible, high performance, multi-parameter test bed for infrared focal plane arrays. An adaptable brass-board system tat is readily reconfigurable to operate advanced FPAs is proposed. this rugged system permits user controlled, automatic tuning of key optical, electronic and thermal/mechanical parameters which are necessary to evaluate new FPA and readout designs in an efficient manner. This brass board test set enables a new testing paradigm whereby parametric field studies are performed early in the testing phase, thereby increasing the probability of successful development.
