The performance of a thermal imaging system operating in the 3-5 micrometers window relative to a system operating in the 8-12 micrometers window is calculated parametrically. Airborne systems operating against typical ground targets are evaluated using Barhydts system performance model with sophisticated models for atmospheric transmission Lowtran III and path radiances, and for target and terrain radiances. Present results are found to be in general agreement with previous analyses, considering the differences in conditions assumed. Author
