1 September 1990 Synthetic visible imagery for multiattribute target identification
Author Affiliations +
A visible band signature model is under development at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) to support research activities ranging from performance studies of human observers to the definition and development of feature extraction algorithms. This model generates visible band imagery based on a solar illumination model coupled with computer graphics rendering algorithms. The solar illunination model employs a modified version of a radiative transfer algorithm originally developed for the Air Force. Selection of an appropriate reflection model followed an evaluation of several techniques. The selection criteria and results of the survey are presented.
