Paper Abstract

A number of errors can occur in the calibration of infrared sources, and in the evaluation of infrared seeker sensitivity at low energy levels on automatic test equipment. Some sources of error and their potential magnitudes will be discussed in the following text. Also, the theoretical SNR of a simple radiometer in the 4- to 5-micrometer range will be discussed.
