Paper Abstract

The Focal Plane Characterization Chamber (FPCC) at the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) is used to provide complete radiometric characterization of infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs). The facility has been used to characterize arrays from a number ofprograms. The FPCC was recently used to provide independent evaluation of a significant number of arrays. The versatility of the FPCC and associated data system was demonstrated in that all of the radiometric performance specifications were readily evaluated with relatively minor hardware and software modifications.
