Abstract : This designers handbook was prepared under Contract No. DAAG53-75-C-0178 by Philips Audio Video System Corp., Government Systems Division, Mahwah, New Jersey for the Night Vision Laboratory, Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The purpose of this manual is to provide information that will aid the system designer in designing a Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) or Thermal Imaging System using the common modules. Chapter 1 provides design information on a 'typical' system based on the use of common modules. This includes a functional description of a typical common module system and a system thermal discussion. Chapters 2 through 13 provide detailed design information on each of the common modules. Items discussed include; general description, technical specifications, theory of operation, electrical and mechanical interface information, design limitations, and alignment/maintenance information. Schematic diagrams, block diagrams, outline drawings and photographs of the modules are included.
