Paper Abstract

This paper describes how simulated hard copy can provide performance prediction and design optimization data during the development of high resolution electro-optic reconnaissance systems. A series of software models have been developed that act on an input image realistically introducing MTF degradation, distortion, and noise as they would occur in the actual system under study. Properties of the various functional elements such as the focal plane, signal processing, and the communications channel are discussed with particular emphasis on those areas where complex tradeoffs are involved. The mechanics of the simulation process are described together with several examples of its use.
