Abstract
Santa Barbara Infrared is working with TNO Human Factors Research Institute to develop the equipment and procedures necessary for a new standardized test method for characterizing electro-optical system performance. This method called Triangle Orientation Discrimination (TOD), offers a statistically more accurate and less subjective method of characterizing electro-optical system performance. TOD testing provides an excellent means of performing system level tests that characterizes spatial sensitivity in conjunction with target contrast, just as MRTD and MRC tests do, but in a more statistically accurate manner with less operator to operator variability. System design parameters and options will be discussed.
