Paper Abstract

The man/machine system - the two basic elements required for the conduct of an infrared survey are the infrared instrument and the operator or technician. The quality of performance can be limited by either one. Generally speaking, the performance of the instrument is predictable as it has predetermined parameters of operation. Given the same ambient conditions, nature of subject, and system calibration, the instrument will perform consistently. The greatest variable occurs when the operator is considered. The background, training, experience and attitude of the individual can influence what is seen and how it is interpreted. Accordingly, it seems appropriate to emphasize the role of the infrared system operator and the need for formal training according to established standards.
