Abstract:

The acquisition of ground targets by airborne observers using FLIR or TV sensors involves a series of steps, one of which is the actual detection or recognition of the target on the display of the sensor. This process is represented by a computer program, IOTA Infrared-Observer-Television Analysis, which contains a flexible, detailed model of the sensor system itself and which also provides for the representation of unaided visual target acquisition. IOTA contains a new formulation of the observers response. This formulation, OBOE Observer-Optical Equations, is described in detail and calculations made with it are compared with experimental results and with other display-observer formulations. Author
