Paper Abstract

This paper examines the key parameters effecting the performance of infrared. line scanners and presents examples of two equipments optimized for different operational requirements. The analysis includes a consideration of key target and atmospheric effects, and performance comparisons of common scanning and recording techniques. A sensitivity analysis relating NET, resolution and to system parameters and a discussion of the elements limiting the modulator transfer function are also included. Curves are developed to illustrate parametric relationships. Equipment examples include a brief description and sample imagery from the RS-18 and the RS-700 infrared line scanners.
