Paper Abstract

To ensure that an imaging system supplies images that meet the needs of the observation mission, it is important to assess the imaging system performance. In this paper we propose a new quality criterion for imaging system assessment. This method is based on three parts: end-to-end analysis of the imaging system, standardized expression of the mission by an objective definition of the observation tasks and 'a priori' knowledge of the properties of the objects to be observed. This quality criterion can also be used as a tool to aid in the design of observation systems based on the properties of the objects to be observed.
