Paper Abstract

An essential part of remote sensor development is constructing accurate electro-optic models which simulate the system and forecast its radiometric performance prior to deployment. Although based upon established radiative transfer equations, these models are often tailored to a particular sensor, implemented as a complex spreadsheet or a batch program written in a high-level language. Unfortunately, a complex spreadsheet can be difficult to manage, and a batch program is laborious to modify and rarely extensible to other sensors. Furthermore, both of these approaches fail to visually represent the system they are modeling. This paper describes WinRAD, a Microsoft Windows -hosted application which, when completed, will provide both scientist and engineer with graphical tools to interactively design electro-optic models the overcome these shortcomings.
