A Fast Estimation of the EO/IR System Performances Using the Image Simulation in a Turbulent Atmosphere
The paper presents a fast evaluation method for the image quality acquired with the EO/IR sensors. The principle of the proposed method is based on the analysis of the histograms of the images acquired using atmospheric turbulence simulations and, then, by the analysis ofthe histograms extracted from simulations. It is assumed that the assessment of an EO/IR sensor system performance can be known in poor visibility conditions, where the atmospheric turbulences have an essential contribution.
