The development and manufacture of high performance Infrared imaging sensors requires more than just the tools to design and build them it also requires the tools to accurately characterize their electro-optical performance and further utilize this data to better optimize the product as well as monitor many systems in serial production. Santa Barbara Infrared (SBIR) in cooperation with FLIR Systems, Inc. (FLIR) has competed a project to significantly enhance the capabilities of their IRWindows software package, now IRWindows2001, to meet the needs of all levels of IR system developers. This paper will discuss both hardware and software requirements, for IR staring sensor testing and performance evaluation. Key aspects of the new IRWindows2001 software will be described and their utility will be demonstrated with FLIR's MilCAM RECON InSb handheld IR camera.
