Virtual minimum resolvable temperature difference (MRTD) measurements have been performed on an infrared sensor simulation based on FLIR 92 input parameters. By using this simulation , it is possible to perform virtual laboratory experiments on simulated sensors. As part of the validation of this simulation, a series of MRTD experiments were conducted on simulated and real sensors. This paper describes the methodology for the sensor simulation. The experimental procedures for both real and simulated MRTD are presented followed by a comparison and analysis of the results. The utility of the simulation in assessing the performance of current and notional sensors is discussed.
