Paper Abstract

This paper describes work performed for the Ballistic Missile Defense Advanced Technology Center to assess the current state of optical sensor calibration and test facilities and to establish a recommended program for meeting projected BMDATC calibration and testing needs. Included in the paper are a summary of existing capabilities and calibration approaches, typical data produced during the assessment, and the recommended approach to satisfying the expected ground test requirements of astronomical infrared sensors.
