Abstract
A method for measuring imaging system MTF is presented that is compatible with modeling predictions as implemented in the Army's FLIR90/92 static performance model. The method uses commonly available commercial test equipment and personal computers and is effective for measuring scanning and staring array imaging systems in any imaging orientation. Testing accuracy is addressed, and simulation results are presented. Actual test data is also shown and compared with model predictions showing good agreement.
