Abstract : A thermistor calibration procedure is developed for silica-filled, alpha cellulose urea formaldehyde simulated skin sensors being used in the new Advanced Thermal Response Data Acquisition and Analysis System being built at the U.S. Army Natick Research, Development and Engineering Center. A thermistor parameter measurement procedure is devised from the results of an uncertainty analysis. The calibration procedure and certainty analysis are described in detail and results to date are presented, which show thermistor calibration precision within the predicted uncertainty and required system accuracy.
