Paper Abstract

Radiometric imaging techniques have direct application for measurement of reflected laser energy distribution. Common camera techniques have certain shortcomings stemming from limited dynamic range and imaging characteristics associated with specific detector and camera systems. This paper discusses various techniques which can be used to overcome camera deficiencies and a technique for cascading multiple camera systems over a range of sensitivities, thereby increasing the overall dynamic range. When coupled with suitable software routines, multiple camera systems can be used as an imaging radiometer suitable for measuring laser energy distribution and developing distribution maps.
