Presented at ILSC 2009
Careful measurements are required to assess the hazards from broadband optical radiation sources. These measurements can be difficult to perform accurately, even under ideal conditions; furthermore, the transient nature of the optical radiation emission from devices such as pyrotechnics, flash devices, and flares make traditional radiometric measurements even more complex. A technique has been devised that can be used to take reliable radiometric measurements of optical radiation sources, including exploding and flash devices. This technique reduces the number of parameters that must be specifically measured. The results of this technique have been compared to traditional spectroradiometric laboratory measurements made on a variety of sources and have agreed within a reasonable error.
