Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the applicatton of a signal processtng technique known as Adaptive Noise Cancellatton to the problem of reductng notse Levels at the output of an Infrared detector. The detection system is considered to relation to self-modulating sources. Two forms of adaptive processing are compared and both methods are shown to improve signal-to-noise ratio and thus increase detector performance.
