Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a new, analytical TOD model. The model provides an estimate of the TOD curve for an Optical, Electro-Optical or Thermal Infrared imaging system based on a limited number of essential system parameters. This is useful to get a quick Target Acquisition range prediction but also serves as a first order input to an image-based TOD simulation model. The model is based on a human observer performance dataset on TOD test patterns, systematically degraded by simulated sensor effects. The model is validated against a number of historical TOD tests on visual and thermal camera systems and provides excellent performance predictions.
