Paper Abstract

We are undertaking a study for the Air Force to determine the state of the art in the measurement of the OTF of lenses. Measurement of OTF has received a great deal of attention, but has it become a practical tool for industry? If the measurement of OTF is a well established procedure for evaluating lenses then perhaps the Air Force should include this measurement in its military standard procedures.
