Uncooled infrared focal-plane arrays (FPAs) are expected to push the US commercial and military infrared imaging and infrared thermometry markets to nearly $1.2 billion by 2002, according to a market research report by Maxtech International Inc. (Valley Forge. PA). Military applications dominated the $790 million infrared imaging market in 1997, but are expected to represent less than 50% in 2002. Dual-use and commercial off-the-shelf military applications are expected to increase by 15% per year. The biggest growth area (at an annual rate of more than 60%) is projected to be in cameras and systems making use of uncooled FPAs.
