Paper Abstract

The surface temperature uniformity of an internally cooled nosetip and window has been characterized in a laboratory environment. The articles under test were conductively heated by an electrical resistance heater and then cooled by circulating a liquid through internal passages. Data was collected before and during the cool-down. Temperatures were derived from the images collected with an InSb MWIR starring focal plane array camera. All of the nosetips and windows tested, performed as designed.
