Over the last decade SCD has established a state of the art VO x µ-Bolometer product line. Due to its overall advantages this technology is penetrating a large range of systems. In addition to a large variety of detectors, SCD has also recently introduced modular video engines with an open architecture. In this paper we will describe the versatile applications supported by the products based on 17µm pitch: Low SWaP short range systems, mid range systems based on VGA arrays and high-end systems
