Paper Abstract

Over the past several years, the U.S. Navy has generated a requirement for the calibration of Forward Looking Infrared Systems (FLIR). This paper describes the calibration of a radiometer used to transfer the change in radiance per degree Celsius of a National Bureau of Standards (NBS) calibrated blackbody to a blackbody located in an infrared test bench. The test bench is then used to calibrate FLIR systems.
