Author Affiliations +
Onera has designed and developed an scientific airborne infrared measurement system. This system is constituted of a supervisor computer and two scientific instruments (a cryogenic IR multiband camera and a cryogenic IR spectro-radiometer). This article presents the different elements of the system and focuses on the design of the cryogenic IR camera. The IR camera design involves instrument control, data acquisition, IRIG time stamping, target acquisition and tracking. This article highlights also the communication design using two Ethernet networks linking the elements of the experimental measurement chain.
