Paper Abstract

This review describes part of a comprehensive continuing research program of downlooking imaging systems evaluation. The main objective of this program is to develop a systematic approach to the operational performance predictions as a practical tool for obtaining an extensive environmental information quickly and economically. A computer program, GASIEL,(eneral Approach to sprstem imaging era uation) has been developed for performance predictions such as the Ground Resolved Distance and different functions of E/O scanners in the visible region under low contrast conditions. The code was derived using a systematic approach to both photographic envelopes and system parameters and includes Atmospheric conditions (atmospheric profiles, air-light etc.), Optics and Detector data, specific targets and backgrounds, all in full spectral analysis. The model is described and the application of the code is given below.
