Paper Abstract

The presence of noise in an IR system adversely impacts task performance in many cases. Typically when modeling the effect of noise on task performance the focus is on the noise generated at the front end of the system (detector, amplifier, etc). However, there are cases when noise may arise in the post-sample of the system due to different display technologies, etc. This paper presents a means to determine the effect of display noise on the sensor system noise under a variety of conditions. A modeling study demonstrates that the effect of display noise correlates to the predicted modeled performance.
