Paper Abstract

Determination of the modulation transfer function (MTF) of an imaging system can be tedious and laborious when done by conventional means. However, through clever manipulation of test imagery, the line spread function and hence the MTF can be more easily found. This paper will introduce a new data reduction approach which is a viable candidate as a new metric for testing imaging systems in the field. The repeatability and objectivity of this analysis appears to have great potential utility.
