Paper Abstract

The “night vision” community has developed and refined a series of test and measurement routines for characterization of “green monochrome” tube and system performance. Although these tools could be directly applied to Color Night Vision Systems, a detailed re-examination of these techniques in the context of “Color” provides a more meaningful metric. The creation of a color contrast measure is proposed as the first step in the development of Color Night Vision specific performance characterization.
