Paper Abstract

The effect of low frequency mechanical vibrations in the image plane on thermal imaging target acquisition is considered. A model is described that takes as input the mechanical vibration data such as amplitude and frequency and the physical characteristics of the target. The output is the probability of detection as a function of time. Analysis indicates that even low amplitude vibration greatly affects the predicted target detection times and, hence, the utility of the IR system in realistic scenarios.
