The Background Measurements and Analysis program (BMAP) operated mostly by Naval Surface Weapons Center (NSWC) is a program of measurement and analysis of background scenes appropriate to generic infrared imaging systems. A computer code generated under contract, for this program, has been made available to NACIT (Naval Academic Center for Infrared Technology) at Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) by NSWC. This code includes two stored measurement data sets for 2 dimensional Fast Fourier Transform comparison and other processing techniques, a version of LOWTRAN propagation code and high resolution graphics. This work is the evaluation of this code for use to provide test data sets to the IRSTD data processing/ acquisition system , the evaluation of AGA DISCO program for use with the BMAP, the evaluation of the present IRSTD/MASSCOMP system for use with the BMAP and the transfer of the extracted BMAP data sets, obtained during an experiment conducted mid-September 1984 at the Raytheon company location, at Bedford MA, to the Masscomp computer of the IRSTD system in IRSTD data form.
