Paper Abstract

This paper considers the nature and magnitude of the influence of the spectral bandwidth on the relevant optical quality MTF of a night vision objective as measured during testing and quality control and its relationship to that which is "seen" during applications. The results show that the practical constraints placed on the quality control criteria may lead to MTFs which are widely different from that "seen" during applications. The origins of this difference are also discussed.
