Paper Abstract

Many of the problems associated with Minimum Resolvable Temperature Difference (MRTD) testing arise from a generally unstable environment, which is especially so outdoors. This paper describes a novel thermal arrangement (subject to a patent application') in which the temperatures of a number of "Hot" MRTD bar patterns are referred to a "Cold" MRTD bar pattern in a way that overcomes the problems of an unstable environment and gives a quick "One-look" GO-NOGO test.
