Abstract:

The outstanding problem in designing passive infrared detection sensors is the design of effective targetbackground discrimination algorithms. A key factor in the design process is the requirement for a data base of high spatial resolution, low noise, background imagery. The cloud and ocean sunglitter data discussed in this report, obtained by Cincinnati Electronics Co. CECO, are intended to help satisfy this requirement for infrared IR background imagery. We recommend that future IR backgrounds measurements with the CECO radiometer incorporate the following suggestions the CECO radiometer should be upgraded to incorporate DC restoration data should be recorded from all 24 detector channels, rather than just 8 channels tape recorder noise should be decreased by improving the data recording system.
