Paper Abstract

CAMEO-SIM is a unique, broadband, EO synthetic scene generation system that has been developed by INSYS Ltd. (formerly Hunting Engineering) in conjunction with the Air Systems Department of Dstl Farnborough, in the UK. The aim of the software is to provide synthetic imagery for all battlefield electro-optic sensors. CAMEO-SIM models real word physics to render high fidelity, 3-D synthetic scene imagery. The code is the tool of choice for the UK MOD and has a growing customer base in Europe and in the U.S. CAMEO-SIM was originally conceived to asses the effectiveness of air vehicle camouflage schemes. The application has since been extended to model ground-based scenarios and more recently an ocean models has been developed, to serve the Naval community. This paper presents an overview of the ocean model development, a description of the techniques and algorithms that have been employed in modeling the sea surface and a summary of the model has been developed, to serve the naval community. This paper presents an overview of the ocean model development, a description of the techniques and algorithms that have been employed in modeling the sea surface and a summary of the model validation work that has been undertaken to date.
