Paper Abstract

A mathematical model for the two-pole and four-pole analog focal plane filters is formulated which gives the filter pole locations in terms of the circuit parameters. The frequency response and impulse response of the filters are computed, and the impulse response is used to calculate the filter output for targets of various dwell times, assuming a Gaussian model for the optical point spread function. The effects of varying the individual component values in the four-pole filter upon pole locations are also considered.
