Abstract:

The objectives of the Performance Synthesis of Electro-Optical Sensors study are to determine the fundamental limitations of long range air-to- ground detection, recognition and identification of tactical military targets, to determine methods of realizing maximum range performance through optimum spatial, temporal and electrical filtering of the received image signals and to devise methods of predicting maximum range performance taking into account the parameters of real targets, backgrounds, illumination sources, atmospherics and sensory systems. The results are to be applicable to all imaging sensors whether passive or active and are to include low light level television, forward-looking infrared scanners and direct view light amplifiers.
