AbstractAccurate predictions of electro-optical imager performance are important for defence decision-making. The predictions serve as a guide for system development and are used in war game,simulations that directly influence engagement tactics. In the present study, mathematical modelshave been developed which involves detection of different military targets using their opto-electronics properties in different environmental conditions. The method first calculates thesignal-to-noise ratio received by the observing sensors reflected from the target by quantifyingthe light energy in terms of photons, which is used for evaluating the detection probability.
