Abstract
This memorandum describes the research and development work that was undertaken at DREV to build a microscanning system to enhance the resolution of a focal plane array camera. This work was conducted as part of the Infrared Eye project, which shows a new approach that intends to help in the detection and identification problems related to search and rescue operations. The microscanning system is based on a focal plane array camera and can improve the resolution by a factor of two. If can operate over all the camera frame rate range (240 Hz) with no degradation in the image quality. It includes an optical component that can perform the microdisplacements of the image on the focal plane array with electronics as well as its associated software allowing synchronization, timing and real-time image processing. This memorandum thoroughly describes the innovative approach used to perform the microscanning operation.
