Abstract
ABSTRACT: The Air Force has a need for a wide-range, differential blackbody to test IR surveillance, targeting and tracking systems in the -40 degrees C to 100 degrees C range. Thermal controlled MRTD test blackbody will be developed that can operate over the full temperature range using thermal electric elements. The proposed design will eliminate condensation problems associated with low temperature operation. BENEFIT: The research and development program addresses a problem seen across industries wherever thermal characterization across a broad range of temperatures is required. The technology developed under this program has broad application in the military and commercial worlds. The device that results from work conducted under this program will be transitioned into BD & E"s product line and help us support the Air Force by further expanding our toolbox of proven technologies.
