Abstract : The Thermal Contrast Model (TCM2) was originally written in Fortran. Phase 1 of this contract resulted in a conversion to the Mathematica language for research purposes. Phase 2 has concentrated on a future operational implementation in ANSI for use with the Phillips Lab Scene Simulation software. This document includes a TCM2.C (ANSI C) target model inventory, description of the TCM2.C file formats, and theoretical discussions of the sloped background and BRDF algorithms.
