Paper Abstract

Absolute radiometric calibration, measurement and error analysis techniques are described for IR imaging radiometers as they apply to field measurements. A serial scanning type system previously used for relative (contrast) measurements is presented as an example in illustrating the techniques. Error sources that are unique to the absolute measurement problem are highlighted. Two field measurement examples are presented to illustrate how the individual error terms can vary and affect the overall measurement accuracy.
