The increasing use of high performance detectors in long focal length FLIR sensors puts a high demand on stabilization systems. In most FLIR designs, the stabilization MTF tends to be the limiting component and has the greatest effect on MRT and range performance. Efforts to improve stabilization results in costly hardware solutions. The verification of the operation of these systems is an important step in the design and development process. This paper details a method for using FLIR characterization tests to measure stabilization system performance thereby verifying the design.
