Paper Abstract

After establishing a working-base image of given pixel-resolution and digitization, in conjunction with a calibration transform, the present method for image-processing based reconnaissance system performance evaluation gives attention to scaling, atmospheric, and MTF factors. The 'kernel spread-point definition', which is a weighted map of the redistribution of energy from a point object, is used to emulate lens-diffraction limitations, linear image motion, and simusoidal or random vibration. Recognition and identification criteria can be evaluated by simply looking at targets.
