Abstract : A reference source for the aircraft infrared measurement community is proposed. The guide provides standard nomenclature, suggested data formats, calibration requirements (including derived mathematics), and measurement methodology. Chapters are also included on developing test plans and writing the formal report. An extensive bibliography contains sections on calculations aid/ equation, calibration, radiometry/spectrometry, and radiation sources.
