29 May 2014 NVLabCAP: an NVESD-developed software tool to determine EO system performance
Author Affiliations +
Engineers at the US Army Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate have recently developed a software package called NVLabCap. This software not only captures sequential frames from thermal and visible sensors, but it also can perform measurements of signal intensity transfer function, 3-dimensional noise, field of view, super-resolved modulation transfer function, and image bore sight. Additionally, this software package, along with a set of commonly known inputs for a given thermal imaging sensor, can be used to automatically create an NV-IPM element for that measured system. This model data can be used to determine if a sensor under test is within certain tolerances, and this model can be used to objectively quantify measured versus given system performance.
