AbstractBased upon the successful dual-band MWIR/LWIR imaging results demonstrated with our uncooled photomechanical imaging technology in Phase I, Agiltron proposes a high-performance uncooled dual-band imager for the IRST sensors used in the ABL Wide Area Surveillance System (WASS) in Phase II. To meet the needs of the MDA, the proposed imager will feature simultaneous dual-band MWIR/LWIR operation for increased discrimination capability; enhanced thermal sensitivity; megapixel resolution for increased field of view, detection range, and angular resolution; uncooled operation for minimized weight, volume, power, and cost and absence of cooling requirements; and ruggedized components. The use of COTS components and vertically integrated manufacturing will simplify manufacturing and radically reduce sensor cost. A fully functional prototype dual-band MWIR/LWIR imager with megapixel resolution will be delivered in Phase II.
