Paper Abstract

A general model is developed to estimate target detection ranges in the visible spectrum. The model takes into account the background and target luminance, atmospheric conditions, target reflectivity, size and angular velocity, sun and sky radiance, the spectral response and the angular resolution of the observation device as well as the time dedicated for scanning the field of regard. Computer simulations as well as experimental results were used to validate the model.
