Paper Abstract

Historically, the performance evaluation of imaging systems has been based on static parameters. These imaging systems were purely optical in nature and did not possess temporal characteristics. With the development of electro-optical imaging systems, and their use in dynamic environments, performance is no longer independent of time constants associated with components of the system. However, static methods often remain the sole measure of performance. In order to accurately measure the performance of an electro-optical imaging system, it is necessary to develop assessment techniques which incorporate both static and dynamic parameters. Justification for considering the temporal characteristics in the performance evaluation of such systems is discussed.
