Blackroom Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Enables evaluation and characterization of materials ranging from the ultraviolet to the longwave infrared (LWIR).DESCRIPTION: The Blackroom Laboratory is used to conduct radiometry, thermography, and multispectral imaging (UV to LWIR) of materials. The room (25 ft L x 14 ft W x 8 ft 10 in. H) is completely painted with Duron 59-980 flat black to minimize extraneous reflections. This facility meets the performance standard PRF-53134, established by the U.S. Army Night Vision and Electro-Optics Systems Directorate for the measurement of visual camouflage.INSTRUMENTATION: CI Systems SR-5000 Spectroradiometer; AN/PVS-7B and AN/PVS-15B night vision goggles; Toshiba IK-1000 ultra-low-light, color video camera; three Canon digital SLR cameras equipped with Gen III image intensifier units; Indigo Merlin shortwave infrafred (SWIR), mediumwave infrared (MWIR), and LWIR cameras; two Gretag-Macbeth SpectraLight III sources; CI Systems SR-20 cavity blackbody; Santa Barbara Infrared dual 8-inch blackbodies; Zenith Reflectance Target.
