Paper Abstract

A system for measuring the spatial, temporal and low resolution (visible and IR) spectral distributions of radiating sources is described. The system has three main subassemblies: A Data Collection system of five standard and special purpose visable and IR scanning cameras; a Preprocessing and Display system capable of handling digital or analog data and containing an interim storage facility; and a Digital Video Processing system. Unique features include data display subsystems which provide grey scale, two configurations of pseudo-color and a 3-D graphical displays. The system can be operated in a real-time or delayed playback mode. Discussed in this paper are the features of the several input devices and the system characteristics and capabilities. The time history of the spatial distribution of source radiance in each of several spectral bands regions can be visually displayed. The display system is used for preliminary analysis and selection of data for off line digital computer analysis.
