Project Description: 

THE USE OF UNCOOLED DETECTOR TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES ATTRACTIVE OPTIONS FOR REDUCING SIZE MASS AND POWER IN MEETING THE SLI THERMAL IMAGING REQUIREMENTS; HOWEVER COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE MICROBOLOMETER DETECTOR TECHNOLOGY SUFFERS FROM SLOW DETECTOR RESPONSE (LONG TIME CONSTANTS) IMPACTING RER PERFORMANCE. FASTER MICROBOLOMETER DEVICES ARE POSSIBLE THOUGH NOT TYPICALLY COMMERCIALLY BUT THERE IS A TRADE BETWEEN DETECTOR RESPONSIVITY AND TIME CONSTANT. EXELIS PROPOSES TO DELIVER AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF EXISTING DRS MICROBOLOMETER CHARACTERIZATION DATA TO DETERMINE THE PERFORMANCE POTENTIAL OF THIS TECHNOLOGY AND IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT.
