Paper Abstract

The paper describes a simulation system which allows numerical experiments with specific sensor configurations. The system consists of mathematical and physical models to simulate the passage of electro-magnetic radiation from the emitting source to the sensor. The simulation is focused on WAOSS (wide angle optoelectronic stereo scanner). WAOSS is a part of the Mars '94/96 project and shall orbit that planet on a platform together with other optical sensors. The crucial feature of this camera is the in-track stereo capability. A serious problem is the test of a simulator for the Mars application. A thorough investigation has two parts: The accuracy of the radiometric values and the geometric image given by the digital terrain model (DTM). Such tests are possible only on Earth, with the airplane camera of WAOSS in a well known reference area with an independently measured DTM. Measured and simulated data are compared and show a good correlation.
