Abstract : A detailed definition of the facilities required for comprehensive investigation of a wide variety of electro-optical (E-O) imaging devices is presented. The types of E-O devices whose characteristics were quantified are: (1) camera tubes, (2) infrared image devices, (3) image intensifiers, and (4) solid state imaging devices. These devices were first analyzed to determine their internal and external design characteristics. Operating parameters were then evaluated so that the measurement techniques capable of quantifying their performance could be defined. The test configurations needed to test each parameter for each type of device were defined. Particular emphasis was placed on selecting test setups which permitted maximum commonality between device types to arrive at a modular and integrated facility. After the functional requirements for each piece of test equipment were established, a survey of sources of test equipment was conducted and off-the-shelf items were specified to the greatest extent practicable.
