Author Affiliations +
Indigo Systems, a division of FLIR Systems, Inc., has released a commercial off-the-shelf, PC-based software program named RPro. RPro, an optional component of Indigo's RTools Radiometric Software Toolkit, was developed for engineers and scientists to efficiently batch process and analyze data from high-end infrared focal plane array cameras, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers, high-speed radiometers, and imaging spectrometers. Many core radiometric calibration and data reduction algorithms already exist within RPro for the user with minimal infrared radiometry experience. For the advanced radiometry engineer, RPro provides a flexible and extensible graphical programming interface to easily develop custom radiometric calibration and data reduction algorithms. Moreover, adding the RPro component to RTools provides the radiometry engineer with the capability to quickly create a data reduction algorithm that when used in conjunction with MODTRAN will correct for atmospheric effects using range supplied time, space, and position information (TSPI). RPro was designed to integrate seamlessly with all other RTools components by utilizing the Standard Archive File (SAF) format maintained by the U.S. Air Force at Arnold Air Force Base, TN.
