AbstractIn Phase 1 of this SBIR program, we developed and delivered a small-format 320x256 dual-band infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) with pixel-registered and simultaneous imaging in the midwave and longwave infrared (MWIR/LWIR) spectral bands. In Phase 2, we will build on this and accomplish two major tasks. Our first goal is to dramatically increase both the pixel resolution as well as the pixel count of this chip. To this end, we will develop and deliver a large-format 1Kx1K (million pixel) dual-band MWIR/LWIR IRFPA with a pixel pitch of 30 microns or better. Our second goal, as an option, is to integrate one of these FPAs into a dewar cooler assembly (IDCA), combine electronics and optics, and develop and deliver a dual-band camera.
