Paper Abstract

A variety of enhancements are being made to the 1976-vintage LASERX computer code. These include: - Surface characterization with BDRF tabular data - Specular reflection from transparent surfaces - Generation of glint direction maps - Generation of relative range imagery - Interface to the LOWTRAN atmospheric transmission code - Interface to the LEOPS laser sensor code - User friendly menu prompting for easy setup Versions of VALUE have been written for both VAX/VMS and PC/DOS computer environments. Outputs have also been revised to be user friendly and include tables, plots, and images for (1) intensity, (2) cross section,(3) reflectance, (4) relative range, (5) region type, and (6) silhouette.
