Abstract
This paper presents a method to determine the resolution of an airborne Thermal Imaging System (TIS) under the conditions and in the environment of typical operation. By determining the resolution of the entire system (e.g. sensor, aircraft, display, pilot) a more realistic measure of the systems true resolution can be determined. The effects of Atmospheric Transmission and Target Radiation are also included in the evaluation.
