Paper Abstract

The following paper submitted by Dr. Barhydt on the effect of various parameters on the performance of nearly-BLIP search and surveillance systems is divided into two parts. In the first part, he discusses the noise equivalent target equation and radiometric performance of these sensor systems. The second part, to be presented in the next issue, will cover scanning sensor optimization, the filter mismatch coefficient, and staring mosaic sensors. From a sensor performance optimization point of view, I believe that the filter mismatch coefficient concept Dr. Barhydt presents should be of interest to sensor design engineers.
