## Introduction to Infrared and Electro-optical SystemsHere's a complete and up-to-date introduction to the analysis and design of infrared and electro-optical (EO) imaging systems. This comprehensive reference details the principles and components of the Linear Shift-Invariant (LSI) infrared and electro-optical systems and shows you how to combine this approach with calculus and domain transformations to achieve a successful imaging system analysis. Ultimately, the steps described in this book lead to results in quantitative characterizations of performance metrics such as modulation transfer functions, minimum resolvable temperature difference, minimum resolvable contrast, and probability of object discrimination. The book includes an introduction to two-dimensional functions and mathematics which can be used to describe image transfer characteristics and imaging system components. You also learn diffraction concepts of coherent and incoherent imaging systems which show you the fundamental limits of their performance. By using the evaluation procedures contained in this desktop reference, engineers and program managers become capable of predicting both sensor test and field performance and quantifying the effects of component variations. "Introduction to Infrared and Electro-Optical Systems" contains over 500 equations. |
