Paper Abstract

Methods of error analysis are described which were used to compare SPIRITS (Spectral Inband Radiance of Targets and Scenes) simulations with actual field test data of jet aircraft. Two distinct methods are discussed for spectral error comparisons. A simple quantitative method of comparing errors between simulated and actual IR images is also described. In addition, the requirements imposed on field test measurements and corresponding simulations to allow accurate comparisons are described.
