Abstract:

This is the final report of a support program under which an assessment and evaluation of infrared sensor technology was made, a technology program plan for measurement programs supporting missile surveillance technologies was developed, and technical and programmatic support was provided for ongoing and planned measurement programs. The technology assessment included focal plane, spectral filter, optics, cooling and onboard signal processing subsystems for space-based surveillance systems. The measurements program support included methodology development for program evaluation, review and analysis of Air Force and other-agency measurement programs and studies of the implications of advanced surveillance system concepts for measurement programs.
