Paper Abstract

Analytical range performance models like NVThermIP and TRM have proved very useful in the development, procurement, and quality control of thermal imaging systems. The analytical approach, however, cannot produce images usable for the visualization of expected capabilities of a planned system or suitable for observer experiments. In order to overcome this limitation, a software package, pcSitoS, was developed at FGAN-FOM that implements most of the features covered by the analytical modeling package TRM but is capable of producing simulated high-quality output images for a given IR system. The simulation model is presented and examples of simulated imagery from both scanning and staring thermal imaging systems are shown.
