A capability for generating sky images containing both clouds and aircraft has been developed through concatenating a variety of models and matting them to an Image Array Processor. A family of apparent images are generated, each at a specific wavelength, whose gray scale values are in terms of absolute radiometric units. These images can then be combined as weighted sums to represent the appropriate spectral distributions for a specific sensor of interest. For example, this simulator has been used to generate sky scenes as inputs to a color CCD camera emulation.
