Paper Abstract

A mathematical model for the visual range prediction of thermal imaging systems, various factors affecting the visual range, as well as the relevant methods of computation are the topics covered. It is suggested that further revision is needed in consideration of the non-linear change of power versus temperature difference when the observed targets are involved in larger temperature difference cases. The concept of equivalent temperature difference is proposed.
