Paper Abstract

Performance evaluation or acceptance testing of IR imaging and target recognition systems requires precise means of controlling radiant energy at near ambient conditions. Small, precisely controlled differences in background and target radiation must be maintained to evaluate the capability of the system to produce a discernable image. In addition to the consideration of technology to maintain this control, attention is given to means of automation to reduce the manpower intensity of testing and aligning complex imaging systems. This paper will discuss the several disciplines of technology that must be applied and integrated to achieve the end result of automated precision radiation control.
