Abstract
Development of a computer-based system for generating simulated infrared imagery is described. The system provides realistic representations of infrared targets and backgrounds for training soldiers in combat vehicle identification (CVI). Using Army-supplied lists of desired items, Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) constructed geometric and thermal models of NATO and Warsaw Pact combat vehicles, terrain backgrounds, countermeasures, distractors, and obscurants. Simulations of several fielded infrared sensors enable system users to generate training imagery sets, both snapshots and animated sequences, showing realistic sensor effects. The system is workstation-based and has a user interface that permits a non-expert to generate desired imagery sets from menus of available models and scenarios.
