Abstract
The performance of airborne infrared systems is affected by limitations on weight, size, cost and the available aperture as well as by aerodynamic heating, rain erosion, icing, atmospheric turbulence and poor visibility. Their impact on the design and choice of materials for thermal imagers and seekers is discussed.
