Paper Abstract

The windows version of the Night Vision Thermal Imaging System Performance Model, NVTherm, was released in March 2001. NVTherm provides accurate predictions of sensor performance for both well-sampled and undersampled thermal imagers. Since its initial fielding in March 2001, a number of improvements have been implemented. The most significant improvements are: (1) the addition of atmospheric turbulence blurring effects, (2) National Imagery Interpretability Rating System (NIIRS) estimates, (3) and the option for slant-path MODTRAN transmission. This paper presents these modifications, as well as a brief description of some of the minor changes and improvements that have been completed over the past year. These significant changes were released in January 2002.
