Abstract

A comparative study of three different thermal imaging system models (FLIR92, FLIR92N, and NVTherm) to military observer responses in a perception experiment was conducted. The responses of the three models were compared and contrasted. NVTherm offers improvement in the performance estimates of under-sampled imaging systems over the current imager model, FLIR92, that was not intended to be applied to undersampled imaging systems. NVTherm also offers improvement over the technique of using FLIR92 with a half-sample rate MRT cutoff.
