Paper Abstract

MTF analysis procedures permit post-flight evaluations of sensor performance and image quality to be compared with predicted values. However, careful consideration must be given to the selection of edge targets, microdensitometry and computational procedures because of the high spatial frequency content of images recorded by reconnaissance sensor systems. An analyst skilled in MTF evaluation procedures can isolate and quantify the effects of factors responsible for image degradation, including vacuum failure, focus error, image motion, and duplicating processes.
