Abstract
A new target acquisition metric has been developed which provides better accuracy than the Johnson criteria. Further, unlike the Johnson criteria, the new metric can be applied directly to sampled imagers and to imagers which exhibit colored (spectrally weighted) noise or frequency boost. This paper describes the new metric. Experimental data are provided showing the problems with the Johnson criteria and illustrating the robust performance of the new metric.
