Paper Abstract

A computerized static performance model is described which calculates the minimum reflectivities required for the recognition and identification of maritime targets. The model is applicable to CCD area array image sensors used in conjunction with a display output. The discussion covers a description of the atmospheric model, modulation transfer functions, the minimum resolvable reflectivity difference, recognition and identification criteria, and program structure. The CCD model is presently being extended to include linear sensors where image motion is used to develop one dimension of the image.
