Abstract
An image processing technique to ascertain target-to-background temperature differences of emissive sources of infrared (IR) radiation is discussed in this paper. After the processing system description, a discussion follows on the image (scene) acquisition process proceeded by an explanation of the image calibration procedure. An example image statistical analysis is presented to illustrate this technique. In particular, a temperature difference is derived for a U.S. M60 tank exercised in a desert background.
