Often FLIR system performances are predicted using standard models such as FLIR92 and ACQUIRE from the US Army NIght Vision and ELectronic Sensor DIrectorate. These models typically produce results such as MRTD verses spatial frequency, NETD, and probability of detection and/or recognition ranges, etc. This paper presents and end-to-end FLIR system performance model using actual IR scene as an input, and produces visual output. This model is developed and run using a commercially available PC based scientific spreadsheet, and it can predict how an actual target would appear on the display of a particular FLIR sensor under a given atmospheric condition and range. It serves as a helpful supplement to the FLIR92 and ACQUIRE models.
