Image tracking algorithms, particularly, pixel level based frame to frame correlation techniques need realistic dynamic scene sequences in order to evaluate their performance and to know whether the algorithms are converging or not. The cost effective way of obtaining these images is only by means of understanding the various constituents of the system, their relationship through a mathematical model and then simulating the required scenario. This paper describes such a scheme - IR Image Simulation (IRIS) when both the target and the sensor are in motion. Details of mathematical model of a tank like target are mentioned in this paper. Development of software packages for simulating background, receiver optics, atmosphere etc., are realized based on the mathematical models which are taken from the open literature. A methodology for real time usage of this system is also briefly mentioned in this paper. Examples of computer simulated images are also presented.
