Paper Abstract

IR spectral remote sensing has demonstrated much in the last few years including the potential for low contrast day/night military target detection. The status, needs, and challenges in the area of physics and phenomenology, sensors, and modeling are discussed. Successful further development of IR spectral remote sensing depends on research and development investment in (1) IR focal plane arrays to lower cost and increase the number of pixels, (2) processing algorithms that utilize the a priori information available from physics and phenomenology studies, and (3) end-to-end performance models encompassing target, scene, atmosphere, sensor, and processing effects.
