Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL DEFINE A COMPUTER SIMULATION CAPABILITY THAT CAN SYNTHESIZE CLOUD CLUTTER AND SEA RADIANCE SCENES MEASURED BY SHIPBORNE IRST SENSORS. THE CAPABILITY WILL BE AN EXPANSION OF ARI'S EXISTING AERIE (AERODYNE INFRARED EARTH) IR BACKGROUND RADIANCE SIMULATION CODE, DEVELOPED TO SYNTHESIZE INFRARED SCENE RADIANCES MEASURED BY IMAGING SENSORS. DETAILS OF THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CLOUDS, SEA STATE, AND ATMOSPHERE THAT WILL INCLUDE IN THE MODELING CAPABILITY WILL BE DETERMINED. NECESSARY ADDITIONS TO THE EXISTING AERIE IR PHENOMENOLOGY AND RADIATIVE TRANSFER CALCULATION CAPABILITY TO HANDLE THE PHYSICAL MODELS OF CLOUDS, SEA, AND ATMOSPHERE WILL ALSO BE DETERMINED. AN INNOVATIVE SCENE PARAMETER SPECIFICATION SYSTEM FOR AERIE THAT WILL ALLOW THE CUSTOMER TO CREATE SCENE SIMULATIONS USING SETS OF SIMPLE METEOROLOGICAL AND SENSOR INPUT PARAMETERS WILL BE DETERMINED AS ONE OF THE MAJOR GOALS OF THE EFFORT.
