The ultimate objective of this project is to develop hardware and software for producing model-based synthetic infrared imagery that will accurately simulate imagery produce by actual forward looking infrared FLIR devices and infrared line scanners IRLS for these applications 1 Sensor selectiondevelopmentproduction decisions, 2 FLIR design tool, 3 Sensor evaluation, 4 Tactical mission planning and 5 Training. In this study, PSR acquired and critically reviewed relevant documents and computer programs relevant to target modeling with special emphasis on ships, background modeling with emphasis on sea and sky and atmospheric transmission modeling. An extensive bibliography is included.
