A pneumatic mosaic infrared detector is proposed which would have the necessary sensitivity, simplicity and ruggedness for field use by combat troops, A laboratory model of the pneumatic mosaic infrared detector has been developed. The major items included were the development of procedures for producing the Mj-7 unit cell mosaic and the development of procedures for producing gelatin films of thickness between 1,000 A and 5>0C0 A and diameter of two inches . The response of the unit pneumatic cell was investigated and the results were as predicted by theory; i.e., the response increased with decreasing length to radius ratio. The predicted optimum of response at l/r =1.2 could not be checked with the apparatus used„ Mechanical difficulties prevented the final testing of the model in time for inclusion of data on the responsiveness and sensitivity.
