Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL IS FOR AN ADJUNCT TO FLIR SENSORS TO REDUCE THE NOISE EQUIVALENT TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE AND MINIMUM RESOLVABLE TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE EACH BY A FACTOR OF FOUR (4). THE PROPOSED ADJUNCT CAN BE APPLIED TO EXISTING FLIRS WITHOUT MODIFYING THE FLIR IN ANY WAY. THIS PROCESSOR WILL ENABLE CURRENT FLIRS TO PROVIDE SAIRS TYPE PERFORMANCE AT A SMALL FRACTION OF THE COST OF A NEW FLIR. THE NOISE REDUCTION PROCESSOR REDUCES THE NOISE BY REDUCING THE EFFECTIVE BANDWIDTH. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT LOSS OF SPATIAL RESOLUTION OR REDUCTION OF FRAME RATE BY THE APPLICATION OF THE PROCESSING METHODS PROPOSED. THE INNOVATION IN THE PROPOSAL IS IN THE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING THE NOISE REDUCTION FOR DYNAMIC SCENES AT THE FULL FRAME RATE.
