Abstract
The technological innovations embodied in the instrument described in this paper can significantly improve the performance of black bodies and their associated thermometry and electronics as used for on-board calibration in many space-borne infrared radiometer instruments, whilst simultaneously reducing mass and power requirements. The same innovations can provide similar advantages for terrestrial based calibrations for both pre-flight and validation activities.
