Abstract : The Avionics Laboratory Chaparral type FLIR has been modified to become a wide dynamic range (greater than 65 dB), calibrated FLIR. To accomplish this, a field stop with known temperature references was added to the optics, and the preamplifiers were replaced with new, wide dynamic range preamplifiers. These modifications as well as a few other minor modifications that were required are described. The acceptance test results are also included. (Author)
