Abstract

This paper describes a commonly used target model and two improved models for range performance prediction of infrared imaging system in an original explicit way. We conclude the basic assumptions of each model, define the temperature difference, and give the mathematical equation to calculate the measurement of resolvable target details. The flow path for using the measurement to evaluate the range performance is briefly introduced. The features of these models are compared.
