The report includes a description of the development and evaluation of an engineering model display, and describes an electronic simulator used in evaluating the display. Results of the evaluation demonstrated that this advanced display technique provides improved resolution, modulation transfer capability, and opportunity for growth over current FLIR display techniques. Supporting design studies outlined approaches to applying this technique to existing FLIR systems. (Author)
