The subject of projecting an infrared scene takes up more or less where mathematical modeling efforts leave off. Typically, a mathematical model produces a table or file of numbers, representing the final states of a modeled system at different times or under different conditions. This discussion treats the problem of how one goes about changing the numerical computer output from a scene radiance model into actual infrared radiances projected to a sensor. "Infrared," as used here, means thermally emitted radiation, generally in the 2 to 20 micrometer region of the spectrum.
