Paper Abstract

A program has been developed that divide apparent areas in a RadThermIR simulation model and IR registration of a platform in different temperature intervals. It offers the possibility to choose any number of temperature intervals as well as the interval sizes. The calculation also provides statistical parameters such as mean temperature, median temperature and standard deviation. In an IR registration, the object can automatically be identified. For complex objects and rare views a manual method of indicating the objects can be used. The program can be used during the design for IR signature control and verification once the design is completed. The program is demonstrated by using a simulation model and IR images.
