Abstract:

INFRARED RADIOMETERS ARE DISC SED. After an introductory description of radiometer system components, the effects of several factors on calibration are discussed. These include analysis of tracking error, effect of variation in sensitivity over the surface of a detector, atmosphericATTENUATION, NON-LINEAR RESPONSE AND NARROW BAND FILTERING. It is concluded that the indivi ual contributions to calibration error of these factors are small, but collectively they might be quite significant. Author
