Paper Abstract

An approach aimed at completely simulating the operation of camera or telescope, including direct calculation of images, in a spatially complex, turbid environment is presented. A Monte Carlo radiative transfer program coupled with an optics design program is used to compute aureoles at the image plane of a camera. The procedure uses the camera MTF so that the operation of the camera in a scattering environment can be completely simulated. The code is validated through a comparison of the analytical solutions for cameras with plane and Gaussian apertures.
