Abstract:

A model describing the GO-point source detection capabilities of low-light-level, photon-noise-limited, electro-optical systems operating at standard television rates has been extended to include image integration within the sensor intensified silicon diode target. Specific examples have been calculated for 0.4 deg - 0.7 deg fields of view, for 14 in. - 31 in. telescope apertures, for 5C - 20C temperatures, for 17m - 22m per sq. sec night-sky-brightnesses, and for several specified video signal-to-noise ratios.
