Paper Abstract

The output of a scanning airborne LWIR radiometer observing stellar sources is treated as imagery . Techniques of digital image processing including frequency and spatial domain filtering are used to enhance the imagery, achieving signal-to-noise ratio improvements up to a factor of 6.24. Raw and processed imagery at 4 and 10 micrometers illustrate the techniques . The use of astronomical sources in conjunction with an internal pulsed photon source for sensor calibration is discussed.
