Paper Abstract

A short review is given concerning some general aspects of thermal imaging quality criteria. Some of the most important figures of merits (e.g.MTF, Minimum Resolvable Temperature - MRT, Signal Noise Power Densi-ty-SNPD) are discussed with the aid of a test system and illustrated by measurements with a mechanical scanner (AGA 680) and a pyroelectric vidicon (Heimann).
