Paper Abstract

Digital simulations produced by the CREATION scene generation program will be used to demonstrate effects of state of the art and proposed future sensor characteristics on the output images of IR imaging systems. Necessary conditions for the validity of the digital simulations will be illustrated in the first part of the presentation. Tradeoffs between specific FLIRs will be discussed and some suggestions for preprocessing steps of future focal planes follow. Important tradeoffs between sensor characteristics are stressed. The fidelity of CREATION does not only apply to readily available vehicle geometry; the rigorously 3D background features of the latest version of CREATION have higher resolution than the state of the art thermal signatures of targets; these additional details may be important for objective comparisons of sensor degradations.
