In this chapter different electro-optical systems are briefly defined and analyzed to demonstrate the application of the radiometric modeling techniques developed in the early chapters of the book. In the work presented here, the emphasis is on the radiometry and methodology, rather than on the detail parameters. Some of the case studies may appear somewhat contrived, but these are still useful hands-on training material. In any real design, considerably more effort will be expended: the level of detail will be deeper, and the models much more comprehensive. One example of a more comprehensive application is the simulation system described in Appendix B.
