22 July 1998 Design and performance of an uncooled radiometer
Author Affiliations +
Inframetrics has developed an advanced 'uncooled' Infrared Radiometer product based on microbolometer focal plane array technology. This development has been the result of a three year consortium effort, funded in part by the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) through the Technology Reinvestment Project (TRP). This paper will give an overview of the camera architecture, and explain some of the more unique aspects of the design. It will describe the camera system and the attributes of this system that have been optimized to yield maximum sensitivity, measurement accuracy and stability. The detector package will be described, with emphasis on items which have been optimized for radiometric applications. Lastly, system radiometric performance will be reported comparing theoretical and measured data.
