Paper Abstract

To evaluate an optical sensor's performance capabilities for specific system applications, it is often cost effective to simulate the optical component's response to the intended environment and the subsequent effect on the system's performance. High-fidelity computer simulations have been developed which provide valuable assistance to hardware development programs. The elements and techniques of optical system simulations are described, accompanied by samples of results. Existing high-fidelity simulations are described and computational resources discussed.
