Paper Abstract

A unified computer model of image intensified sighting systems based on signal to noise performance modelling but incorporating the eyes varying properties as a function of luminance has been developed at the Royal Signals and Radar Establishment. This model has been shown to fit field data collected on military systems and has been in extensive use over the last 18 months at RSRE and within British Industry. This paper considers the validation of the model for image intensified night vision goggles and, by this example, the range of validity of the model will be illustrated.
