Paper Abstract

The use of infrared sensors in the Netherlands is substantial. Users can be found in a variety of disciplines, military as well as civil. This need for IR sensors implied a long history on IR technology and development. The result was a large technological-capability allowing the realization of IR hardware: specialized measuring equipment, engineering development models, prototype and production sensors for different applications. These applications range from small size, local radiometry up to large space-borne imaging. Large scale production of IR sensors has been realized for army vehicles. IR sensors have been introduced now in all of the armed forces. Facilities have been built to test the performance of these sensors. Models have been developed to predict the performance of a new sensor. A great effort has been spent on atmospheric research, leading to knowledge upon atmospheric- and background limitations of IR sensors.
