  2. Maybe the US government should take some ideas from this. After spending a lot of money developing the next-gen uncooled LWIR sensor, the US has still lost the technical advantage in that domain to the French.

  3. I don't think so but it is not something you are going to find in the open literature.

    I think it is irresponsible to let this technology proliferate in the commercial sector. The weaponization potential is large and the commercial applications limited. Same with SWIR and MWIR.

  11. The last post is correct. Some technologies and devices are widely spreaded mainly by European companies. Too much restriction on US products will hurt their business.
