17 June 1996 Space chamber calibration comparison
Author Affiliations +
For the first time in more then 10 years, the same IR sensor has been tested in both the portable optical sensor tester (POST) space chamber and the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) 7V space chamber and the results compared. These chambers both have extensive calibration capabilities with direct tractability to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This paper describes the tests performed, the excellent comparison results, and a brief description of the calibration approach used for each chamber.
