Paper Abstract

Thermal Imaging Systems are characterized by various tests such as Minimum Resolvable Temperature (MRT), System Intensity Transfer Function (SITF) and Noise Equivalent Temperature Differential (NETD). Numerous sources of errors can effect these test giving misleading results. These error sources are analyzed and a new correction methodology is presented.
