Paper Abstract

An error analysis for IR imaging radiometers is summarized. In all, a total of 14 different sources of error are considered in the determination of a total cumulative error. Since the accuracy of a radiometer is the best judge of its usefulness, such an error analysis can be used in the design of an imaging radiometric system. Trade-off studies can be performed in such a way as to minimize the total cumulative error of the system. Examples of how minimizing the total error impacts the design of a number of radiometer sub-systems are presented.
