Infrared Measurements

Infrared measurements are essential in the development of accurate models for use in simulations. Simulation based research and experimental development and testing, plays a critical role in validating equipment, before prototyping, saving researchers time, effort and costs.

The CSIR’s researcher in optronic sensor systems uses imaging radiometers as well as an imaging Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) spectrometer, which collects spectral data, to characterise objects spectrally, spatially and temporally. Measurements, using the imaging radiometers, are executed in the short-, medium- and long-wave infrared bands.
