Paper Abstract

The fundamental limits of temperature estimation accuracy are computed for a gray body object. Cramer-Rao bounds are computed for both signal host noise and background-limited cases. A procedure is described for obtaining practical limits on temperature estimation for a given optical system and for evaluating sensitivity to system parameters. The applications include multispectral scene analysis, high-speed thermography, and temperature discrimination.
