Here's an up-to-date, comprehensive review of surveillance and reconnaissance (S & R) imaging system modeling and performance prediction. This new, one-of-a-kind resource helps you predict the information potential of new surveillance system designs, compare and select from alternative measures of information extraction, relate the performance of tactical acquisition sensors and surveillance sensors, and understand the relative importance of each element of the image chain on S& R system performance. It provides you with system descriptions and characteristics, S& R modeling history, and performance modeling details.
