(U) THIS PAPER DESCRIBES COMMON SOURCE TECHNIQUES DEVELOPED TO RESOLVE A VARIETY OF MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS. ALL INSTRUMENTS ON A TEST SITE RECORD THE IRRADIANCE FROM A CALIBRATED LAMP KNOWN AS THE COMMON SOURCE. ANALYSIS (INCORPORATING RANGE, ATMOSPHERIC DATA, SPECTRAL BANDPASS, AND SPATIAL EFFECTS) IS PERFORMED SO THAT EACH MEASUREMENT DESCRIBED THE RELATIVE MAGNITUDE OF THE SOURCE TI IDENTIFY AND CORRECT DISCREPANCIES. THE REPEATABILITY OF THE COMMON SOURCE MEASUREMENT PROVIDES A MEANS TO ESTABLISH AN EMPIRICAL ERROR BAR. SPECIFIC EXAMPLES ILLUSTRATING THE UTILITY OF THESE TECHNIQUES ARE PRESENTED.
