This paper describes a Computer Image Simulation System (CISS) developed by EIKONIX. The system produces imagery from simulated visible and infra-red optical systems using either film or solid-state detectors. The CISS has been used to formulate and evaluate specifications for several remote sensing systems. Our experience has shown that computer modeling can be an important tool for producing an effective and efficient system design. The EIKONIX CISS consists of six basic components each of which simulates an aspect of the imaging process: scene generation facility; atmospheric model; collection system model detector model; data channel model; and soft and hardcopy display facility. Together these components provide "end-to-end" simulation of an optical system and its product. The purpose of this paper is to describe the components of our system and to illustrate its use.
