Paper Abstract

The atmospheric transmission characteristics of ultraviolet radiation are unique, which have made ultraviolet detecting technology has been developed rapidly in military application domain. Missile approaching warning system based UV detecting technology distinguish target by detecting the ultraviolet radiation in solar blind spectrum from missile's plumes. This warning system is a passive warning system, which has advantages of good concealment, low false-alarm rate, cooling without low temperature, small size and light weight. It has been an important part of modern battlefield in the electro-optical countermeasure domain This paper expatiate the principle of ultraviolet detecting technology and introduce the developments about ultraviolet warning and related technology, including the ultraviolet transmission in the atmosphere, the ultraviolet radiance characteristic of target and background, the ultraviolet photoelectric detectors, and the ultraviolet detection technology. A suit of ultraviolet photoelectric imaging system has been designed. This system is made up of three parts, there are narrowband ultraviolet optical system in large field, ultraviolet ICCD camera and ultraviolet warming image processing device. A great deal of imaging experiments about ultraviolet target in several kinds of typical meteorological condition have been done, these images shows the system is efficient and reasonable. The characteristics of ultraviolet objective imaging be tested and evaluated by analyze the experiment images obtained by the system. This system provide theoretical and test bases for engineering research on ultraviolet missile approaching warning system.
