A set of field tests was performed to demonstrate the use of a PtSi camera for airborne applications. The test-data was used to verify the applicability of Tamam's performance model. The sensor was integrated into a Tamam stabilized payload and mounted on a Bell 206 helicopter. Over 30 hours of recorded data was collected from different backgrounds and scenarios. The information analysed so far was matched with computed results. These results, generated by our "Detector" program and compared to the test results show good correlation, and thus validate the "Detector" analysis program.
