In the past, the measurement of MRTD, MTF of Infrared thermal imager usually used the eye subjective method. This method is more applicable, but its result is hard to decide and easy to induce dispute because of the effect of eyes’ subjective factor. The purpose of searching objective method is to eliminate these adverse factors and to present a unitary and objective judging standard. Nowadays several countries, denoted by English, have worked on this field and made big progress. China is on the starting step now. The key of objective measuring method is using computer to draw out the characteristics of infrared image and identify, then describe or judge the identified result.
