Infrared Technology and Applications - Restricted Access

Course Description

This course is an introductory tutorial on Infrared Systems Engineering. It is identical in content and duration to its companion course, Infrared Technology and Applications – Open Access, except it includes DoD information limited to government agencies and their contractors. It is intended for presentation at Government or DoD contractor facilities on a contract basis. The overall objective is to describe the operating principles of infrared systems, with emphasis on military systems. In pursuit of this objective, the course addresses the performance limitations of present infrared (IR) systems, issues pacing the development of new systems, and key component technologies. The course describes problem-solving, design, and analysis techniques with emphasis on experience-based "rules of thumb." The goals are to describe system operation, explain underlying physical principles, introduce design tools and analysis concepts, and provide a perspective for evaluating new infrared technologies.
