Paper Abstract

Night vision capability has become an indispensable tool for military and civilian surveillance operations. Low-light- level television (LLLTV) and Forward-Looking-IR (FLIR) devices have long been used for these applications. Nevertheless, both have their shortcomings when the identification of the target is essential for the success of the mission. LLLTV cannot provide god image resolution in ultra low-light level conditions and is very sensitivity to parasitic light. FLIR system have poor resolution when the temperature difference contrast conditions are not met.
