Paper Abstract

In recent years many electro-optical devices have been introduced into the military community to ensure air transport capabilities at all times and under a wide range of weather conditions, and to allow target acquisition in low visibility, low light level situations. Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) will be used for navigation in helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. To give weather support to E-O system users a decision aid to predict FLIR performance has been developed. To evaluate FLIR-performance atmospheric transmittance and path radiance have to be addressed, as well as sensor characteristics and background temperatures.
