Paper Abstract

A new type of blackbody simulator design is described that is based on the principle that the projected solid angle of the aperture is constant when viewed from all points on the cavity wall surface. This design provides compact blackbody simulators with excellent spatial uniformity, and they are especially well suited for the calibration of space platform infrared detector arrays.
