Paper Abstract

There are several techniques for performance evaluation of an imaging system (IS). The first is the classical one: performance is considered as a characteristics called minimum resolvable temperature difference (MRTD). The second one is fidelity which is a parameter based on the least-square error between output signals of the idealized IS and an investigated one. The least-square error takes into account noise and distortions introduced by high spatial frequencies suppression. The third technique is defined via correlation coefficient between output signals of the idealized IS and a definite one. The paper discusses the application of the mentioned approaches for performance evaluation.
