Research Institution
Feasibility of the microbolometer detectors using novel thin film materials was proven in Phase I. Phase II will continue these efforts by producing packaged sensors that are designed to function in PFx systems for persistent ISR applications. In order to provide a low unit cost, high sensitivity, sensor component source, Phase II R & D efforts will focus on improving the sensitivity and response time of the microbolometer elements developed in Phase I. At the same time, Plasmonics Inc will continue to provide the Army with regular shipments of packaged sensor elements that may be used in field tests and for PFx prototype units during Phase II. Plasmonics Inc will work with the Army and their contractors to integrate the sensors built in Phase II with existing platforms. Work to improve process yield and volume capabilities will also be made in preparation for Phase III.
