Paper Abstract

This paper describes an image sensor performance model which can accommodate aperiodic and periodic image patterns of arbitrary size and shape and which is applicable to a variety of electro-optical sensor systems in any spectral region. Performance predictions have been validated experimentally. It is especially effective for IR FPA systems used to acquire low contrast thermal imagery because of the accuracy of describing the multiplicity of noise components produced by the arrays. Use of this model is illustrated for typical ground and airborne applications.
