Abstract
A thermal imager system including several optimization features is described. The imager is designed to give good image quality even under severe scene conditions. The system includes several types of image processing functions. One is the Ground Scene Optimization, supervising the imager's gain and offset values, and presenting proper scene dynamics on the monitor screen. Another function is the Local Dynamic Control system, which optimizes the information content from the scene presented to the operator on the monitor screen.
