Title: Considerations Regarding Test and Evaluation of the Optoelectronic Equipments
Author(s): Daniel Lapadat                  

Abstract: The paper under consideration is concerned with the measurement uncertainty considerations regarding the process of testing and evaluation of optoelectronic devices in laboratory conditions. The optoelectronic pieces of equipment referred above have military applications and are intended to the armed forces use.

Keywords: modulation transfer function, standard uncertainty, expanded measurement uncertainty.
