Paper Abstract

Many image processing applications (e.g., correlation guidance systems) require synthetically generated images to simulate the data obtained by electro-optical sensors. All currently available computer image generation (CIG) systems model only the perspective projection. Thus, there is a need for CIG systems that can simulate all sensors, including those that do not have a linear geometrical function (projection). In this paper, a system capable of modeling all projections is described, and three nonplanar projections (spherical, cylindrical and polar) are discussed in detail.
