Paper Abstract

Scenes taken by infrared (IR-)cameras show the temperature distribution within a scene in the form of different image half-tones as a chequerboard pattern. The half-tone distribution of the image displayed depends on the intensity of the radiation of the individual parts of a scene and on the momentary transmission conditions of the atmosphere as well as the sensory characteristics of the camera system. This means that one and the same scene, taken with different cameras or at different times, results in different half-tone distributions for the pictures. Therefore, a long-term trainingis required for equipment provided with IR-cameras in order of cover as many weather conditions as possible. This problem is solved by the IR-Scene Simulator.
