Paper Abstract

Systems Engineers utilize Technical Performance Models to predict, track and ultimately support requirements verification for sensors. These models evolve during the phases of sensor development to serve a variety of purposes. The model captures the performance of the systems under development from electromagnetic energy incident at the instrument aperture to instrument SNR and the associated noise equivalent quantities of interest required by our customers. In this paper we present a methodology where these models have been a key element of technical success, highlighting the efficiency of the approach.
