Paper Abstract

This paper presents a review of the technical characteristics of the Dual Color Radiometer and recent data and test results. The Dual Color Radiometer is a state-of-the-art device that provides simultaneous pixel to pixel registered thermal imagery in both the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micron regions. The device is unique in terms of its spatial and temperature resolution of less than 0.10°C temperature and 0.10 milliradian spatial resolution. In addition, the device is tailored for use by the Automatic Target Recognizer (ATR) community. This paper is a follow-up to the paper (New High Sensitivity, High Resolution Dual Color Calibrated Imaging Radiometer) published in SPIE Proceedings, Volume 940 dated April 1988. Whereas the previous paper dealt with design and special features, this paper will describe the laboratory tests and present the associated performance results for both the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micron spectral regions in the following areas: • Minimum resolvable temperature • Modulation transfer function • Video imagery
