The channel output of a multi-wavelength pyrometer is the brightness temperature rather than the true temperature. Twice recognition method is put forward to change the brightness temperatures of a multi-wavelength pyrometer into the true temperatures of targets. Using the data offered by Dr. F. Righini, the experimental results show that the difference between the calculated true temperature based on twice recognition method and the real true temperature is within +-20 K. The method presented in this paper is feasible and effective for the true temperature measurement of targets.
