Abstract:

The next generation of Army imager performance models is currently under development at CERDECs Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate NVESD. The aim of this new model is to provide a flexible and extensible engineering tool for system design that encapsulates all of the capabilities of the existing Night Vision model suite NVThermIP, SSCamIP, etc. along with many new design tools and features, including a more intuitive interface, the ability to perform trade studies, and a library of standard and user-generated components. By combining the previous model architectures in one interface the new design is better suited to capture emerging technologies such as fusion and new sensor modalities. In this paper, the authors will describe the general structure of the model and some of its current capabilities along with future development plans.
