Paper Abstract

The assessment of imaging system performance is critical to ensuring a system is delivering the highest quality products possible. The principle two methods for evaluation of reconnaissance system performance are resolution and the National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS). This paper describes both methods, and presents benefits and limitations of each. Use of the NIIRS is shown to be on the increase as it and an associated prediction model have been relatively recently released unclassified.
