Paper Abstract

This paper concludes the large effort sustained by OPGAL in designing a radiometer instrument based on the uncooled microbolometer detector. A detailed description of the design considerations, temperature drift model and the expected accuracy is presented. The idea is to enable temperature measurement at a relatively high accuracy for any uncooled microbolometer based FLIR, even if the detector is not a radiometric one, by using the NUC flag as an extremely low frequency chopper.
