Small Pixel Advantages

  • Digital Zoom reduces size weight and power and allows for dynamic image enhancement 

  • Custom User-defined Region-of-Interests Allow Multiple Window Selection over FHD Scene

  • Small Pixel High Sensitivity Results in Better Imaging in All Seeing Conditions

 

NYQUIST-SHANNON
SAMPLING CRITERION

OVERSAMPLING WITH SMALLER PIXELS

Benefits of Smaller Pixel Pitch

  1. Minimized aliasing

  2. Negligible noise modulation

  3. Improved Noise Equivalent Power (NEP)

  4. Reduced false alarm rates

  5. Lower missed detections

  6. Deeper tracking into the noise histogram

  7. Less detector material required for same pixel format

  8. Use smaller, lightweight optics

  9. Potential for lower systems cost

  10. Correlation improved surveillance and detection range

  11. improved optical flow and related motion processing

UNDERSAMPLING WITH LARGER PIXELS

Limitations of Larger Pixel Pitch

  1. Increased aliasing

  2. Signal Modulation

  3. Diminished NEP

  4. Increased false alarm rate

  5. Increased missed detections

  6. requires larger heavier optics

  7. Potential for higher system cost

  8. Higher integrated background signal

  9. Tracker target dropout
