Research Institution

RL Associates, Inc. proposes to study the feasibility of implementing a single high broadband sensitivity, uncooled infrared detector array as a replacement for several of the sensors currently incorporated into the Joint Multi-Mission Electro-optic System (JMMES). Feasibility will be demonstrated using an electron bombarded CMOS sensor based on an InGaAs photocathode image intensifier. The sensor would be capable of replacing the current laser designator and laser range finder detectors, operating at 1.06 um and 1.55 um, respectively. Advantages of this sensor include increased sensitivity, multi-band sensitivity, and the addition of imaging capability to a system currently using several single pixel detectors. This sensor may also be used to replace or augment channels in the JMMES MSI, giving it a third application in a single unit.
