This presentation describes a personal computer-based Pascal code which allows evaluation of airborne imaging system installation parameters by calculating the sensor imaging performance and comparing the sensor's laboratory resolution and its installed resolution, and by calculating the installed sensor's field of view obscuration or vignetting. A variation of this code has been used to characterize Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) and Advanced Tactical Airborne Reconnaissance System (ATARS) sensors. Flowcharts and applications of the airborne imaging system performance model are presented. Selected results from the use of similar codes also are shown.
