Paper Abstract

Panoramic infrared imaging is relatively new and has many applications to include tower mounted security systems, shipboard protection, and platform situational awareness. In this paper, we review metrics and methods that can be used for analysis of requirements for an infrared panoramic imaging system for military vehicles. We begin with a broad view of general military requirements organized into three categories, survivability, mobility, and lethality. A few requirements for the sensor modes of operation across all categories are selected so that panoramic system design can address as many needs as possible, but with affordability applied to system design. Metrics and associated methods that can translate military operational requirements into panoramic imager requirements are discussed in detail in this paper.
