sufficiently powerful to provide onboard processing capabilities for a gigapixel capability.

Both the basic science underlying advances in detectors, optics, coolers, and algorithms and the commodity processing capabilities enabling new trades in signal processing are available worldwide. Emerging detector and related system-level technologies have significant potential for advancing sensor systems and deserve attention from the intelligence community in assessing present and future global sensor system capabilities.
