AbstractUnder this SBIR Imaging Systems Technology will develop a large area IR scene generation system based on its Plasma-shell technology. Plasma-shells are tiny glass bubbles filled with gas. When energy is applied across the Plasma-shell the gas ionizes to form plasma. The Plasma-shells are applied to substrates to form large area arrays. The arrays are very rugged, and can be made very large. Plasma is an excellent source of infrared emission. The tiny shells have very little thermal mass, thus they can be updated very quickly to achieve 200 Hz frame rates.
