Paper Abstract

FLIR technology continues to expand at a near exponential rate. Even with the rapidly changing FLIR technology the ways in which we evaluate these imagers in the lab have in some ways changed very little from the early days. The history of FLIR testing has had its earliest roots from the image intensifier and television community and a tri-service group put together in the early 1970s as a means of developing a standard set of tests that could be used to quantify an IR imager. This paper will chronicle the people and testing techniques used throughout the history of the development of the FLIR from the infancy stages of FLIR testing to the testing methods of today.
