Paper Abstract

This paper describes a radiometric measurement system built atound a programmable microprocessor. The placement of the microprocessor at the center of the system architecture allows for optimum performance of a number of diverse and complex measurement tasks through software coupling. System design parameters are reviewed, and a number of specific applications are described. Data is included for measurements in which the system is used in spectral radiometer, transmissometer receiver, process control analysis and reflectometer applications. Finally, additional system conditioning features are discussed which make possible, through software, the optimization of the above measurement tasks.
