This textbook addresses imaging from the system engineering point of view, examining advantages and disadvantages of imaging in various spectral regions. Focuses on imaging principles and system concepts, rather than devices. Intended as a senior-year undergraduate or graduate level engineering textbook. A solution manual is included.Parts 4 and 5, respectively, discuss MTFs for image motion and vibrations and the atmosphere. ... In real life, such limitations usually stem not from the electronics or optics, but rather from atmospheric distortions (over long paths) or mechanical vibrations and motion. ... They actually form an important and integral part of the teaching text, and for this reason a Solutions Manual with complete solutions isanbsp;...
