Paper Abstract

A sophisticated and flexible digital infrared data collection system has been assembled at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. The system includes such components as two radiometers responding in the 3-5 and 8-12 micron spectral bands, a near infrared television, and a master computer which performs the data acquisition and permanent storage function. In addition, a second computer system is included allowing for off-line image analysis. The application software development and hardware interfacing comprised the majority of the effort described herein. The purpose of the system is to allow for the collection of infrared target signature data which hopefully will enhance development of phenomenological and semi-empirical thermal models. This paper presents a description of the instrumentation hardware and software as well as details on the interface between sensors, computers, and additional peripherals. The details of a recent system characterization activity are also included.
