Paper Abstract

The effects of background temperature changes and detector spectral characteristics on apparent blackbody temperature are analyzed. The error sources are quantified for representative thermal imaging system detector spectral responses and system optical bandpass. In addition, a method is presented for correcting background temperature variations for each of the detector responses.
