The Fundamentals of Electro-Optical/Infrared Sensor EngineeringJune 18, 2020 | 14:00 - 15:00 EDT (18:00 - 19:00 UTC)
This webinar will present the fundamentals of electro-optical (EO) & infrared (IR) sensor technology, its analysis and its application to military search, track and imaging systems. Electronic warfare (electronic attack and electronic protection) are emphasized. It will cover the various classes of targets and their optical radiation characteristics including their radiant exitance and emissivity. It will also discuss External Radiant sources & Planck's radiation formula, Surface reflectivity, IR radiation transmission through the atmosphere and a number of other elements that can affect EO/IR analysis and performance.
The design of surface and airborne EO/IR search and track systems and their performance and analysis for several types of targets are considered as a function of the spectral, spatial and temporal discrimination techniques being used. Electronic attack against EO/IR sensors including flares, obscurations, flash and laser systems are highlighted and measures to be taken for protection are emphasized.
Dr. Phillip Pace is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Ohio University in 1983 and 1986 respectively, and the Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati in 1990, all in electrical and computer engineering.
