Paper Abstract

The NPS-IRST,a modification of the Advanced Demonstration Model of the Navy AN/SAR-8 InfraRed Search and Target Designation system, mounted in a rooftop location at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, has been used to record background scene information. High data-rate tape-recording with reduced-rate playback is used for data processing and a 'framegrabber' board for image display and processing. Irradiance probability density function, pulse width probability density function, and autocorrelation function plots are displayed for five background types selected from false-color image displays.
