Some of SCD’s cooled and uncooled detectors are specially designed for missile applications. The unique structure of cooled detectors’ Dewar enables very fast cool down time and hence quick mission readiness using a Joule-Thomson (JT) cooler. Due to the low heat load on the focal plane, these detectors achieve long mission duration, a basic requirement for missile applications.
