The report confined to the measurement of infrared radiation emitted by aircraft, includes a catalog of each type of aircraft in the US Army inventory. Each type is represented because the measurement procedures used may differ for each depending upon size, speed, and intended tactical use. A brief discussion of the physical laws involved in taking such measurements is also included, as is a discussion on the different backgrounds encountered in a measurement program. The need for adequate instrument calibration is emphasized. Various measurement techniques and their application are discussed. Data reduction and analysis are covered briefly, and several parameters that are routinely determined by analysis are considered.
