In an experimental setting where new sensing techniques are being developed and the source/medium/system parameters are in a constant state of change, a flexible radiometric prediction tool can be essential for experimental design and analysis. The Spectral Signature Sensing (SSS) analysis and visualization software development is a user-friendly analytic tool that is designed for radiometric analysis and modeling of radiant optical energy from a source to a detection system. Transmission through the atmosphere is computed with MODTRAN and the code features multiple-source options and a flexible set of parameters for the detector. It also provides a Google Earth display function to visualize the simulation scenario. In this paper a summary is presented of the radiometric calculations applied in this modeling tool. The essential components and the main features are briefly described including the system-component inputs, other options such as save and load inputs, and the resulting spectral plots and radiometric output.
