Paper Abstract

With the increasing availability and applicability of staring focal plane array (FPA) thermal imagers, the accurate modeling of these sensors is a critical requirement within the infrared community. The FLIR92 sensor performance model, developed by the U.S. Army Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD), provides the capability to predict laboratory performance for staring FPA thermal imagers. FLIR92 uses readily available system level parameters to predict the device MRTD and MDTD. This paper illustrates the techniques used in the model by evaluating performance for a staring FPA thermal imager.
