Abstract
The feasibility of un-cooled long wave infrared (LWIR) imager line of sight (LOS) stabilization without the use of gimbals has been assessed with the aim of improving the existing performance of electro-optics (EO) sensors. In order to accomplish this, an initial review of current state of the art electro-optical systems is made in order to assess their potential for this application. Following this review the most promising candidate technologies are down selected and several options are chosen for further study and analysis.
