Abstract
Here we propose the development of a "Two-Color" Integrated Infrared Sensor that will have Military applications in the areas of Surveillance, Target Detection, Acquisition and Tracking, Non-Cooperative Target Recognition, Missle Guidance, Thermal Imaging, Navigational Aids, Night Vision, and Sensor Technology for Countersteatlh-aircraft, etc. It will have the unique capability of providing "Discriminatory Signature", which is the ability to discriminate between two types of targets or objects such as airplanes, for example distinguish a U.S. Airplane from a non-U.S. airplane. Xacton has already demonstrated a major breakthrough in the Infrared Sensor Technology by producing very high quality wafers and Detectors of Mercury Cadmium Telluride over a range of wavelengths. In this program, we will demonstrate an Integrated Two-Color Sensor, with one Sensor operating in the 3-5 micron range and the other in the 8-12 micron range.
