Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design, implementation and use of an infrared imaging radiometer, operating in the 8 to 14 micrometre waveband, which employs an uncooled linear array of pyroelectric detectors. The radiometer system consists of a sensor head, which incorporates all the necessary electronics for image capture and data and video output, and a power supply and display unit, which incorporates a display monitor, system power supplies and drive electronics for the panning unit. The system can be interfaced to a microcomputer for data calibration and analysis.
