Paper Abstract

The Image Intensifier Tube (IIT) is the most critical component within a night vision device. Acquisition, production, test and evaluation of image intensifier tubes can be greatly enhanced by the application of machine vision technology. The Navy, Air Force and Army have invested over $2,000,000 in the development of a machine vision-based test set known as the Automated Intensifier Measurement System (AIMS). This paper will describe methodologies employed in the AIMS to measure Modulation Transfer Function (MTF), Dark Spots, Bright Spots, Shear Distortion, and Gross Distortion.
