Paper Abstract

This paper describes in overview the current status of analytical models used to design, evaluate, and predict the performance of passive thermal imaging systems (TISs). The scope is limited to real-time imaging systems and does not consider such equipments as infrared search-track sets, line scanners, or narrow band laser augmented sensors. The purpose is to establish the current limits of our analytical capability, problems in our ability to analyze TIS equipment, and improvements that are required at this time.
