Abstract:

A general method is presented for selecting appropriate Electro- Optical E-O mathematical models for application to specific air-to-ground target acquisition problems. The method is illustrated by several examples. The report also abstracts and summarizes the key model descriptors which are germane to the selection process. This summary is based on a description of fourteen mathematical models for air-to-ground target acquisition by observers using FLIR and TV sensors presented in a previous NWC report by the same authors NWC TP 5840.
