Paper Abstract

MTF and pseudo-MTF analytical techniques are applied to the problem of predicting system performance for reconnaissance sensors which incorporate Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) imaging detectors. The MTF analyses, used in conjunction with assumptions about Signal-to-Noise (S/N) requirements and a simplified weather model, provide a much-needed systems design tool.
