  • Publication number: 20210344832
    Abstract: A method includes providing a body, an actuator coupled to the body, a stage coupled to the actuator, an image sensor coupled to the stage, a first staring focal plane array that is located at a first location, and a second staring focal plane array that is located at a second location that is offset from the first location in two dimensions. The method also includes determining a velocity of the body, causing the actuator to backscan the stage in one or more directions at a drive velocity corresponding to the velocity of the body, causing the first staring focal plane array to capture a first strip of images of a target, and causing the second staring focal plane array to capture a second strip of images of the target. The second strip of images is offset from the first strip of images in the two dimensions.

  • Patent number: 11095809
    Abstract: An imaging system includes a body, a stage coupled to the body, and an actuator coupled to the body and the stage. The actuator is configured to move the stage in one or more directions relative to the body. The imaging system also includes a focal plane array including one or more detectors and coupled to the stage and a controller coupled to the actuator. The controller is configured to determine a velocity of the body and to cause the actuator to backscan the stage in the one or more directions at a drive velocity corresponding to the velocity of the body. Moreover, the controller is communicatively coupled to the one or more detectors and causes the one or more detectors to capture image data during the backscan.

  • Publication number: 20200073107
    Abstract: An imaging system includes a body, a stage coupled to the body, and a focal plane array including one or more detectors and coupled to the stage. The imaging system also includes a lens assembly including an objective lens and a rear lens group. The lens assembly is coupled to the body and optically coupled to the focal plane. The imaging system further includes a transparent plate coupled to the body and optically coupled to the objective lens and the focal plane array. The transparent plate is disposed between the objective lens and the focal plane array. Additionally, the imaging system includes an actuator coupled to the transparent plate and configured to rotate the transparent plate relative to an optical axis of the imaging system.

  • Publication number: 20050255625
    Abstract: An imager, an image sensor included in the imager and a method of fabricating the image sensor are provided. The image sensor having a substrate with front and back sides to produce image data, includes a transparent conductive coating arranged on the back side of the substrate, a first well region of a first conductive type having first and second opposite sides, the first side being arranged adjacent with the front side of the image sensor; and a second well region of a second conductive type, different from the first conductive type and having a deep well region provided adjacent with the second side of the first well region, the transparent conductive coating configured to develop or to receive a first potential and the first well region configured to receive a second potential to substantially deplete a region between the transparent conductive coating and the first well region.
