Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the present position and highlights some deficiences, particularly in MRTD measurement. It then discusses some suggested methods of measuring MRTD objectively. Some new problems are then examined, briefly, which are caused by the undersampled nature of many of the new staring array thermal imagers and some approaches are mentioned which may possibly lead to resolution of these problems. The importance of measurement methods suitable for production and in-service testing is emphasised.
