24 August 1988 Simulating FLIR Imaging Characteristics In Real Time
Author Affiliations +
FLIR imaging systems produce imagery from infrared radiation. The optical, electronic and mechanical characteristics of the system determine many of the characteristics of the image. Simulations based only upon derivations of infrared irradiances from first principles generate ideal imagery that is not representative of FLIR imagery. A system has been developed for generating an approximation of ideal imagery, based upon simplified heat balance equations. This ideal imagery is then modified in various ways to simulate some aspect of the imaging system. The simulation executes in real time, and is suitable for both engineering and training environments.
