7 December 1988 Hot Spot Detection Probability Dependence On Thermal Imager Parameters
Author Affiliations +
The probability of detecting (Pr) a target in a thermal image is an important performance parameter in many ima'6ing systems. The system P depends on many parameters, such as: noise equivalent temperature difference (NETD), instantaneous field of view (IFOV), background characteristics and scanning efficiency. In this presentation the theoretical dependence of Pc on some of the above-mentioned parameters is discussed. Laboratory simulation results as well as some field test results are shown in this paper. 1.
