Paper Abstract

We developed a software framework for image-based simulation models in the chain: scene-atmosphere-sensor-image enhancement-display-human observer. The goal is to visualize the steps and to quantify (Target Acquisition) task performance. The framework is set up in such a way that modules of different producers can be combined, once they comply with a standardized interface. At the moment the shell runs with three modules, required to calculate TA-performance based on the TOD (Triangle Orientation Discrimination) method. Applications of the shell can be found in the areas of sensor design, maintenance, TA model development, tactical decision aids and R&D. Model developers are invited to add their module to the frameweork.
