16 September 1987 Some Useful Results On The Simulation Of Optical Imagery
Author Affiliations +
This paper presents four techniques that can be used to increase the effectiveness of Monte Carlo simulations of target-oriented optical (visible and infrared) imagery. Included are strategies to optimize looping structures and to simplify the simulation of algorithms that involve spatial moment calculations. Importance sampling for simulating low-probability events (e.g., miss or false alarm) is also discussed.
