Abstract
To achieve sufficient sensitivity, background noise suppression is required because of the relatively weak target signal. Background noise suppression techniques, first order, second order temporal differencing, spatial and temporal differencing, are analyzed and compared. Background noise due to both background drift and system jitter effects are calculated. Pixel-to-pixel offset-induced boresight errors is also evaluated.
