Abstract
Seascape is a distributed application that renders synthetic images using raytracing paradigm. It incorporates a computational model of infrared marine clutter. First principle models of water waves and light transport provide a computationally intensive clutter model implemented as a raytracer. Seascape models include sea, sky, and solar radiance, reflectance, attenuating atmospheres, constructive solid geometry targets, sensor, target, and water wave dynamics, and simple sensor image formation. Our focus is on the 3 - 5 micrometers waveband but Seascape can easily be configured for operation in the visible and longwave infrared. We have implemented an efficient parallel computation of this model on a heterogeneous array of UNIX workstations.
