Paper Abstract

This paper describes a computer model for generating 3-D images of small vehicles. The paper shows examples and gives throughput, memory, and accuracy for implementation on a VAX computer. Each vehicle is described in terms of components such as wheels, chassis, and turret. The model decomposes these components into three-point facets which are the basis for generating an image. Each point of a facet can be assigned a specific temperature, emissivity, and reflectivity. Range contour imagery from the model is useful in developing identification and classification algorithms for laser radars.
