Abstract:

As new and improved designs for night vision imaging systems based on the principle of image intensification are produced, it is advantageous to have a system which can accurately and quickly assess the performance of various configurations of intensifiers and associated optics. Parameters which define system performance include field-of-view FOV, magnification, and distortion. The availability of precision positioners and personal computers enable the measurement of performance as specified in Military Specification MIL-A-49425 CR, Aviators Night Vision Imaging System ANAVS-6V1. ANAVS-6V2, with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. A measurement system which provides high flexibility in the evaluation of image intensification devices is described. Testing, Image intensification, NVG, ANVIS.
