Paper Abstract

A new synthetic ladar image generation tool has been developed for use in ATR algorithm development and evaluation. The image generation tool, called SYLVER, was designed originally for air-to-ground targeting scenarios and simulates the effects of arbitrary platform and target motion as well as sensor scanning. Particular attention has been given to realistic rendering in the vicinity of range discontinuities, since edges are important to many recognition algorithms. This paper presents an overview of the image generation approach and details the mathematical models employed. Example images are shown and characteristics of the simulated imagery are compared with those of field collected data.
