Paper Abstract

A guide to preparing specifications for thermal imaging systems has been prepared by a tri-service working group under the sponsorship of the Joint Technical Coordinating Group-Thermal Imaging Systems (JTCG-TIS). The document covers all phases of system development from advanced development through production prototypes. It acts as a guide for imaging system requirements and the quality assurance test procedures necessary to check those requirements. Because of the length of this document a short synopsis has been prepared. Emphasis in this synopsis is placed on imaging quality requirements with MRT as an example to describe both the limitations and versatility of using the overall tri-service document. This shorter paper should aid in making the thermal imager community aware of the tri-service guide while describing its content and how it might be used.
