The objective of this task is to provide the UAV-BPI IRST development effort with a utility for producing cloud scenes for use in the Synthetic Scene Generation Model SSGM. As currently configured, SSGM comes with only a handful of cloud scenes, which are not necessarily adequate to fully represent the range of cloud conditions in the theaters of interest. The cloud generation utility produced under this effort utilizes historical cloud coverage data for the regions of interest to produce cloud scenes representative of the location and time of year.
