Infrared Technology and Applications - Targeting Systems - Restricted Access (ITA-TS-RA)

Course Description

This course is an introductory tutorial on Infrared Systems Engineering. It is identical in content and duration, when coupled with its companion course DEF 3012U, to the open access version entitled DEF 3001P - Infrared Technology & Applications - Open Access (3-1/2 days in duration) except it includes DoD information limited to government agencies and their contractors. It is recommended that it be taken with the similarly restricted companion course entitled DEF 3012U - Infrared Technology & Applications - System Performance Evaluation - Restricted Access (ITA-SPE-RA) (1/2 day in duration). Together they cover the same topics as the open access version.

The overall objective of this course 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 design tradeoffs with emphasis on experience-based "rules of thumb." The goals are to describe system operation, explain underlying physical principles, and discuss newly emerging infrared technologies including the impact they are expected to have.

Suggested price: $24,998 (locations throughout continental U.S.)
