Abstract
While several established models exist for estimating human detection/recognition performance of infrared imaging systems, characterizing the performance of autonomous imaging IR system is still in its infancy. This paper proposes a generic scene description metric which uses target and background characteristics to measure the extractability of the target from the background and is equally applicable to the detection, recognition, or tracking problem. A methodology which correlates this metric with ground-truth based system performance to establish critical performance values is then presented. Finally, an integrated model for predicting the overall system performance given user specified scenarios is presented.
