Abstract : The purpose of this study was to develop a computer software package to simulate airborne electro-optical imagery systems in nonreal time. The results of the study include a computer program that can be used as a research tool in conjunction with a long-range program for the development of sensor simulator technology and a set of techniques, algorithms, and design guidelines to be used in developing an interactive real-time simulator system. The study encompassed three main areas. These were data base generation, mathematical model formulation, and algorithm and software development. The simulation program is designed to simulate three target areas under many different weather (visibility and water vapor content) and daytime conditions. The inputs to the program allow the operator to choose a flight profile. The program then creates and displays a set of representative pictures of the target in a simulated flyby.
