Paper Abstract

An analysis of the basic energy equation which describes the infrared system (IRS) operation is suggested as the basis for the adaptation methodology. First, it is necessary to do a sufficiently complete formula for the IRS figure of merit being adapted as the function of the IRS parameters. Secondly, it is useful to determine both a degree of various parameters influence on the adapted figure of merit and a possible range of its variation. Then it will be possible to evaluate the accuracy of the chosen adaptation method. As a simple example, the parametric adaptation of IRS sensitivity has been considered.
