Abstract

The regression-based general image-quality equation (GIQE) previously developed for visible imagery was extended to IR imagery. The equation predicts IR National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale values as a function of scale, sharpness, and signal-to-noise ratio with the same form as the visible GIQE.
