Paper Abstract

The RSRE Dual Waveband Imaging Radiometer has been used to collect simultaneous infrared signatures in both of the 3-5 micron and the 8-12 micron atmospheric transmission wavebands. The use of internal temperature references enables these results to be scaled to apparent temperature, that is the target temperature as perceived by the imager after passage through the atmosphere. The derived temperature profiles for a target in the two prime thermal wavebands can therefore be compared with ease. Results will be presented showing both the similarities and the differences between the signatures in the two wavebands.
