Abstract
SURFACE TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS OF REENTRY VEHICLE MATERIALS AT AEDC RANGE G HAVE SHOWN LARGE UNCERTAINTIES IN SOME CASES DUE TO BOUNDARY LAYER EMISSION/ABSORPTION, BACKGROUND RADIATION, AND POSSIBLY VARIATIONS IN EMISSIVITY WITH TEMPERATURE AND WAVELENGTH. MULTICOLOR PYROMETRY OFFERS CONSIDERABLE PROMISE FOR REDUCING TEMPERATURE/EMISSIVITY MEASUREMENT UNCERTAINTIES. AN APPROACH IS SUGGESTED FOR OPTIMIZING A MULTICOLOR PYROMETER DESIGN TO MEET THE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS OF AEDC SURFACE TEMPERATURE DIAGNOSTICS. THE PROPOSED WORK INCLUDES THE DEVELOPMENT OF ALGORITHMS TO CALCULATE TEMPERATURE AND EMISSIVITY, AND THE UNCERTAINTIES IN THESE QUANTITIES, FOR AN N-COLOR IMAGING PYROMETER.
