Abstract
SEVERAL TESTS CAN BE PERFORMED ON THERMAL IMAGING SYSTEMS TO DETERMINE PERFORMANCE. MINIMUM RESOLVABLE TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE, MRT, IS THE MOST WIDELY USED SPECIFICATION PARAMETER AND A BASIC INGREDIENT IN THE PREDICTION OF TARGET ACQUISITION CAPABILITIES OF THE SYSTEM. CURRENT METHODS TO MEASURE MRT FOR A THERMAL IMAGING SYSTEM RELY HEAVILY ON THE SUBJECTIVE NATURE OF A HUMAN OBSERVER. AS THE USE OF THERMAL IMAGING SYSTEMS INCREASES, SO DOES THE NEED TO PROVIDE A COST EFFECTIVE, SIMPLE, AND ACCURATE METHOD TO RELATE SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS TO FIELD PERFORMANCE. DCS CORPORATION PROPOSES TO PROVIDE AN OBJECTIVE TEST METHOD TO MEASURE MRT.
