Abstract
The modulation required for the detection of sources on the AFGL infrared sky survey is produced by scanning the infrared telescope and bandlimiting the frequency response of the sensor system,a technique which attenuates the low frequency contents of the extended sources. The survey data is being processed in order to obtain information on these extended sources. The high pass filtering of the system is rectified by applying its inverse to the data stream. The details of this procedure, the uncertainties along with some results are presented.
