Modeling Performance of an Airborne Infrared Sensor Used by a Man-in-the-Loop in Tactical Aircraft during Daylight Operations
RAYTHEON TI SYSTEMS LEWISVILLE TX
Pagination or Media Count:
The performance of a man-in-the-loop using an IR sensor in a tactical aircraft, in daylight, is severely limited by the cockpit display. Any FLIR performance prediction model that fails to take the display effects into account will yield very optimistic results. The best monochromatic tactical aircraft displays are contrast limited during daylight operations and are able to reproduce only a fraction of the available dynamic range of current generation IR imaging sensors. Polychromatic cockpit displays used to view imagery limit daylight performance even further.
