14 July 1988 Overview Of Future U.S. Navy Requirements For Infrared Calibration Equipment
Author Affiliations +
This paper provides an overview of calibration requirements and calibration approaches for new U.S. Navy infrared support equipment. The new infrared systems that are being developed in the Navy will require more complex test stimuli than those currently in use. The requirements will include multispectral capabilities, multisensor boresight alignment (infrared sensor and laser receiver, microwave and infrared), and dynamic thermal resolution targets. Imaging systems will require testing of the image processing functions of the system. New and improved calibration equipment and methodology will be needed to meet these more complex test requirements. However, changing test methodology should not necessarily impact current calibration philosophy. Support for certain parameters at the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) will also require development or improvement.
