Paper Abstract

12 An end-to-end simulation is a valuable tool for sensor system design, development, optimization, testing, and calibration. This contribution describes the radiometry module of the end-to-end simulation tool SENSOR. It features MODTRAN 4.0-based look up tables in conjunction with a cache-based multilinear interpolation algorithm to speed up radiometry calculations. It employs a linear reflectance parameterization to reduce look up table size, considers effects due to the topology of a digital elevation model (surface slope, sky view factor) and uses a reflectance class feature map to assign Lambertian and BRDF reflectance properties to the digital elevation model. The overall consistency of the radiometry part is demonstrated by good agreement between ATCOR 4-retrieved reflectance spectra of a simulated digital image cube and the original reflectance spectra used to simulate this image data cube.
