The main methods to measure the MTF of staring thermal imaging systems available now were described. The principles, technical features and key techniques of the canted slit method and laser speckle method were analyzed, respectively. The conclusion was gotten that these two methods deserve to study and popularize for the MTF measuremnet of the staring thermal imaging systems.
