Abstract
Based upon the static performance of thermal imaging system, the visual range prediction adapted for the extended source target and the spot target is studied. Two kinds of mathematical model and the equation of operating range are set up for the extended source target and the spot target. Meantime, the paper gives computer simulation results and presents a method of the visual range prediction of thermal imaging system to verify whether the thermal imaging system satisfied the technical requirement of the operating-range. Finally, in this paper, the visual range prediction and the test results are compared.
