Infrared signature measurement capability has a key role in the electronic warfare (EW) self protection systems'
development activities. In this article, the IRLooK System and its capabilities will be introduced. IRLooK is a truly
innovative mobile infrared signature measurement system with all its design, manufacturing and integration
accomplished by an engineering philosophy peculiar to ASELSAN. IRLooK measures the infrared signatures of military
and civil platforms such as fixed/rotary wing aircrafts, tracked/wheeled vehicles and navy vessels. IRLooK has the
capabilities of data acquisition, pre-processing, post-processing, analysis, storing and archiving over shortwave, mid-wave
and long wave infrared spectrum by means of its high resolution radiometric sensors and highly sophisticated
software analysis tools.
The sensor suite of IRLooK System includes imaging and non-imaging radiometers and a spectroradiometer. Single or
simultaneous multiple in-band measurements as well as high radiant intensity measurements can be performed. The
system provides detailed information on the spectral, spatial and temporal infrared signature characteristics of the targets.
It also determines IR Decoy characteristics. The system is equipped with a high quality field proven two-axes tracking
mount to facilitate target tracking. Manual or automatic tracking is achieved by using a passive imaging tracker. The
system also includes a high quality weather station and field-calibration equipment including cavity and extended area
blackbodies. The units composing the system are mounted on flat-bed trailers and the complete system is designed to be
transportable by large body aircraft.
