Paper Abstract

Advances in FLIR (Forward-Looking Infrared) technology are threatening to surpass the capabilities of the IR test equipment--the blackbodies and target projectors--used to characterize them. New systems currently under development, such as those using advanced focal plane technology, will provide even greater performance. In response, a new approach to IR target projection has been developed. This approach will allow testing technology to keep pace with the ever-increasing demands of these advanced FLIRs.
