Abstract : The Image Based Sensor Model (IBSM) is a modular set of numerical tools for designing, evaluating, and modeling electro optical and infrared (EO/IR) imaging sensors. The primary motivation which led to the development of IBSM was the need for a model which (a) could produce simulated sensor imagery (based on high fidelity input imagery) in addition to sensor performance metrics to better characterize the imaging performance of a sensor system, and (b) provides the flexibility to evaluate and compare sensors and imaging configurations with differing characteristics without rewriting computer code. The model operates within the Khoros Cantata environment, and can perform realistic simulation of image degradations and parametric modeling with a wide range of atmospheric, sensor, and processing effects. This report provides a comprehensive overview of the model.
