Hardcover. 399 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.4in. x 1.1in.An up-to-date, comprehensive review of surveillance and reconnaissance (S and R) imaging system modelling and performance prediction. This resource helps the reader predict the information potential of new surveillance system designs, compare and select from alternative measures of information extraction, relate the performance of tactical acquisition sensors and surveillance sensors, and understand the relative importance of each element of the image chain on S and R system performance. It provides system descriptions and characteristics, S and R modelling history, and performance modelling details. With an emphasis on validated prediction of human observer performance, this book addresses the specific design and analysis techniques used with todays S and R imaging systems. It offers in-depth discussions on everything from the conceptual performance prediction model, linear shift invariant systems, and measurement variables used for S and R information extraction to predictor variables, target and environmental considerations, CRT and flat panel display selection, and models for image processing. Conversion methods between alternative modelling approaches are examined to help the reader perform system comparisons. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781580531320
