This paper documents mid-infrared high spatial resolution terrain background measurements taken at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The results include the mean, minimum, and maximum apparent radiance signatures as a function of the time of day from three different locations. Source radiance signatures that have been corrected for path radiance and atmospheric attenuation, and contrast radiance within the analyzed fields of view, are also presented.
