Paper Abstract

The image forming ability of an IRLS system has been assessed by means of laboratory measurements and in-flight testing using a ground test array. The laboratory tests have included determination of the over-all system modulation transfer function, amplitude characteristics and the minimum resolvable temperature. The ground test array consists of a 3-bar wedge pattern and a radiance step constructed of dissimilar panels of painted and sand-blasted aluminum. Analysis of the imagery resulting from over-flying the array yields data of the amplitude characteristics and the noise-limited resolution of the system.
