Paper Abstract

The current status of U.S. efforts in infrared background and model development is assessed. The paper includes discussions with both DoD and contractor research personnel active in data collection, system design, and background modeling, backed up by examination of a large body of existing reports and data. Future background measurement programs as well as the directions that background modeling efforts are taking are also discussed.
