Paper Abstract

Several techniques are presented for modeling sky backgrounds in an infrared scene simulation. Each technique provides a part of the overall requirements for an accurate sky background model. A description of each technique is given and examples of each are presented. The main result of these investigations is that it is possible to combine both physically accurate models of atmospheric radiative transfer with computer algorithms for the generation of realistic cloud imagery.
