Paper Abstract

Modeling of electro-optical sensor performance with emphasis on the effects of smoke and aerosol in the path between target and sensor is discussed. The elements which comprise a simple model are presented along with characterization of propagation path effects. Design of an experiment to validate performance models is discussed with particular importance placed on the selection of targets to match sensor features. Data acquisition equipment and measurement techniques used for characterizing high bandwidth video signal synchronously with data characterizing the optical path are described.
