Author Affiliations +
IRTool is an IRST X Windows analysis tool, which is being developed by Arete Associates and NSWC/WO under the sponsorship of the Office of Naval Research in support of the Infrared Analysis Modeling and Measurements Program (IRAMMP). The tool consists of an integrated set of physics based modules to support IRST multispectral and space-time analyses. The primary modules are for (1) modeling atmospheric effects, (2) simulating ocean and cloud scenes without and with sensor effects, (3) modeling and injecting target signatures into real and simulated data, and (4) analytic calculation of the expected signal-to-noise ratio (ESNR) for an airborne target on a specified trajectory. Additional modules support data processing and analysis for clutter characterization and model validation. These modules have undergone extensive verification and comparison with data. IRTool has an interactive X Windows driver, which launches stand alone modules to run in the UNIX background. The user can interactively display and plot module outputs using IDL programs written for IRTool. IRTool is available from the IRAMMP program manger (Douglas Crowder).
