Abstract:

A facility has been developed for testing and evaluating thermal imaging sensors. The facility employs a differential temperature source imaged by a 12 inch off-axis parabolic mirror collimator. The facility can provide differential temperatures ranging from -20C to 80C. Four-bar resolution targets are available from 0.25 cymrad to 9.0 cymrad. Tests that can be performed include minimum resolvable temperature difference MRT, signal transfer function SiTF, modulation transfer function MTF and line spread function LSF, uniformity, and distortion.
