Abstract : This report documents the development of the Enhanced Cloud Scene Simulation Model developed by TASC for Phillips Laboratory in support of the Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement (SWOE) Program under the Balanced Technology Initiative. The model simulates multi-dimensional cloud water density fields for input to radiative transfer models and scene generation systems. The enhanced cloud model incorporates additional capabilities and modifications to previous model versions. This document focuses on those new capabilities and briefly summarizes the technical tasks completed under the Cloud Scene Model Development Project. Cloud model, Fractal model, Scene simulation, Cumulus model.
