Paper Abstract

Specification and evaluation of electro-optical systems which detect and locate moving weak point sources in the presence of background noise are the subjects of this paper. Our intent is to present a design procedure for a large aperture sensor utilizing several discrete detectors. A step-by-step design procedure will be discussed, with emphasis on the optics and the focal plane detectors. Much of the procedure has been implemented by automatic computation, but some is left to experienced judgement.
