Paper Abstract

Evaluation of proposed new U. S. Navy calibration methodologies and techniques will be performed using an imaging radiometer. Mr. Westfall and Mr. Larason develop an analytical model for initial analysis and present results of the first-order performance model developed during conceptual design. Scanner selection and the blackbody references are addressed, and the performance prediction for the detailed design is included. The paper then turns to noise versus encoding interval, discusses the system block diagram, and summarizes anticipated calibration and testing requirements.
