Paper Abstract

The importance of the thermal image system increases rapidly. Uncooled thermal imagers offer the advantages of room temperature operation, light weight, small size, low power requirements, simplified logistics and increased reliability. In this work, we propose a relatively simple procedure which can reasonably write specifications and design systems with higher speed. The first order design is coped with system performance models and PC based scientific spreadsheet, a mathematical software package constructs to provide a cost-effective, compliant solution to a design problem. An illustrative example is presented to show the details.
