Paper Abstract

This paper describes an improved Extended Area Blackbody Source for testing thermal imagers on the production line and in the field. Emphasis is given to the Dynamic MRT capability, and Scene Targets. The paper details work performed on this improvement program. Initial work was described in our previous paper "Microprocessor based radiation sources", Ron Fourier, et al, published by SPIE Volume 520, 1984. I will describe the tests performed on this source, including Calibration, Environmental temperature stability, Radiometric calibration and uniformity tests.
