Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the Modulation Transfer Functions (MTF) associated with image motion. The paper describes MTF for line-of-sight vibration, electronic stabilization, and translation of the target within the field of view. A model for oculomotor system tracking is presented. The common procedure of treating vibration blur as Gaussian is reasonably accurate in most cases. However, the common practice of ignoring motion blur leads to substantial error when modeling search tasks.
