Abstract
The alternative approach presented in a previous conference paper in which spatially dependent expressions were derived for infrared signal and displayed signal-to-noise ratio is extended to reveal the sources of infrared contrast at each pixel site and to the consequent development of methods by which signal and displayed SNR can be calculated across a thermal image.
