Paper Abstract

As more and more spectral ranges are used by different threat detecting sensors, the effectiveness of a countermeasure is becoming more and more dependent on how similar its emitted spectrum is to the object that it is supposed to simulate. As a result, the need to model and test the countermeasure radiometric output (in radiance units) and contrast (in radiant intensity units) or effective temperature at different wavelengths simultaneously increases in importance during both R&D and production for both the producer of countermeasures (to confuse the seekers) and the producer of missile seekers (to prevent seeker confusion). We have developed a family of multi-spectral radiometers (ColoRad) specifically designed to quantitatively measure countermeasure spectral signatures dynamically for precise characterization. In this paper we describe the design of such instrumentation, including the various modes of operation and highlighting the important instrument features for the present application. In addition an example of measurement is given here to demonstrate its usefulness. The ColoRad performance parameter values are also given in this paper.
