Abstract : Two different Michelson interferometer measurement systems were used to collect spectral radiant intensity data describing blackbody emissions. These data were subjected to statistical and numerical analysis for the purpose of characterizing infrared measurement variability. A mathematical model has been postulated to describe the variability of infrared measurements based on the results of this analysis. Recommendations are made for future study to verify and extend the results presented in this report. (Author)
