SC181: Predicting Target Acquisition Performance of Electro-Optical Imagers
This course describes how to predict and evaluate electro-optical (EO) imager performance. Metrics that quantify imager resolution are described. The detection, recognition, and identification tasks are discussed, and the meaning of acquisition probabilities is explained. The basic theory of operation of thermal imagers, image intensifiers, and video cameras is presented. This course describes how to quantify the resolution and noise characteristics of an EO imager. The theory and analysis of sampled imagers is emphasized. Image quality metrics are described, and the relationship between image quality and target acquisition performance is explained. The course provides a complete overview of how to analyze and evaluate the performance of EO imagers.
