An end-to-end digital computer simulation can be a useful tool to determine the relationship between a system's performance and design parameter choices. Properly written, the simulation can allow easy parameter adjustment, and can permit the analyst to quickly com-pare both quantitative and qualitative imaging performance over a broad range of system configurations. To test the utility of such a simulation, we developed a model of a Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) Imager. The model is based on image processing routines that translate a digital image used as an input to another image that represents the system output. The simulation design is discussed and examples of its performance are presented.
