Paper Abstract

A mathematical model of staring planar array sensor behavior is required for simulation of sensors in imaging system performance evaluation studies, as well as for evaluation of the sensors themselves. Such a model should be accurate, adaptable, and practical to implement. As existing models of scanning sensors were inadequate, a model that is both structurally and statistically consistent with actual sensors has been developed at Texas Instruments. To characterize a class of sensors, data is collected by recording selected imagery using a representative sensor. The recorded data is reduced, converted, and stored in a medium facilitating access by a digital computer. The resulting data is then analyzed to extract critical sensor statistics that characterize the nominal behavior of the sensor and the associated fixed and time varying errors.
