Paper Abstract

This paper describes a direct measuring technique for determining the image auality of raster-scanned cathode-ray tube (CRT) displays. This technique is based on the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) theory and human visual psychophysical data. The rationale for the technique is discussed from a theoretical as well as functional viewpoint. The instrumentation necessary to obtain these measures in manual and automatic modes is discussed. Data obtained using this measurement technique are analyzed and compared with the theoretical performance of the displays. The image quality of new CRT displays procured for the U.S. Army's Advanced Attack Helicopter is being specified and tested using this direct measuring technique.
