Abstract
PerSEval is a modeling and simulation tool being developed for end-to-end evaluation of airborne persistent surveillance imaging sensor systems. This class of sensor systems is characterized by having a wide coverage area over an extended period of time and operating in either visible or thermal infrared wavebands. Current operational systems are heavily used by image analysts for tracking vehicles or dismounted personnel, with an emphasis in urban areas of interest. Future persistent surveillance systems will include automated ground target tracking algorithms to alleviate analyst workload. As a system evaluation tool, PerSEval will include dependencies on the scenario, platform, sensor, processing, and tracking algorithm. This paper describes the overall PerSEval architecture as well as the first phase of development which focuses on the creation of a three-dimensional urban terrain simulation appropriate for the evaluation of automated tracking algorithms.
