Optical Imaging: System Performance and
Modeling edited by
Lucien M. Biberman
This is the updated and revised version
of Biberman's 1973 book "Perception
of Displayed Information." It contains
new chapters and never before reported data.
Biberman skillfully pulls together the works
of 25 outstanding authors. It is a comprehensive
analysis of EO sensor performance (both
photoemissive and infrared systems).
Topics include: performance of visual systems,
image intensifier tube structures, state-of-the-art
visual and near IR sensors, calibration
of television camera tubes, calibration
of IR imagers, target signature metrics,
assessment of target detection models, modeling
of the observer in target detection, modeling
false detections, and search modeling. The
book presents the physical and mathematical
substance of the processes, as well as performance
of the prediction models.
