Paper Abstract

The drive for automatic target detection, definition and recognition is mandating the development of dual waveband digital FLIRs. This paper plots the evolution of such a FLIR from its origins in the UK Thermal Imaging Common Module Program and a research funded dual waveband imaging radiometer to a prototype, airborne, dual waveband FLIR. The paper then plots the function of this FLIR in the DRA's overall strategy for the evolution of operational, dual waveband, digital FLIRs and outlines other related research programs and the methodology being employed for evaluating the options and making decisions on the configurations of operational systems.
