Abstract
CANDIDATE POLARIZEDS FOR MISSILE FUSE ASSEMBLIES CAN EXHIBIT STRONG SPACIAL AND WAVE LENGTH VARIATIONS IN TRANSMISSION AND CONTRAST. A PROTOTYPE INSTRUMENT IS PROPOSED FOR RAPID, AUTOMATED TRANSMISSION AND CONTRAST MEASUREMENTS TO CHARACTERIZE POLARIZERS DURING DEVELOPMENT OR IN PRODUCTION QUANTITIES. A SPINNING CALCITE PRISM POLARIZER IS USED TO PROVIDE HIGH CONTRAST CAPABILITY OVER VISIBLE AND NEAR INFRARED WAVE LENGTHS. THE INSTRUMENT IS MODULAR AND DESIGNED TO BE COMPACT, EASY TO OPERATE, MAINTAIN AND CONSTRUCT. OPERATION AND DATA ANALYSIS IS COMPUTER CONTROLLED.
