The authors have developed a prototype model of optical detection systems based on a set of primitive mathematical operations that are characteristic of elements in a detection system. The model can cascade these operations arbitrarily to simulate very complex detection systems without requiring cumbersome amounts of input for simple detection systems. Each execution of the model cascades an independent single instance of the noise associated with each operation drawn from the mathematically correct distributions in the same manner as an actual detection system. Thus, ensembles of images from the simulation exhibit the same statistical properties in each pixel as an ensemble of images obtained from a corresponding optical sensor. The resulting images are suitable for development and evaluation of image processors and machine vision systems.
