Author Affiliations +
This paper provides an update on the RAD9000 MWIR/LWIR spectral radiometer: a high-performance instrument supporting extremely accurate absolute and relative radiometric calibration of EO test systems. The system features an all-reflective optical system, internal and external thermal reference sources, a visible camera-based sighting/alignment capability, modular MWIR and LWIR detector/filter subassemblies, flexible control/display software, and a sophisticated graphical user interface (GUI). We present prototype performance data describing the instrument's thermal sensitivity, radiometric accuracy, spectral resolution, calibration, and other key parameters.
