Paper Abstract

This paper describes the development of a computer based infrared mission rehearsal system (IR-MRS). The IR-MRS can be used for IR mission planning, selecting navigation waypoints, and for mission rehearsal. For specific scenarios, locales, and environments the IR-MRS can simulate ingress/egress corridors and realistic target engagement ranges. In addition, the sensor model's modular design allows the IR-MRS to have a very wide applicability to problems involving either the design or the simulation of infrared sensors. The simulation is performed on Silicon Graphics (SGI) computers in order to take advantage of SGI's accelerated 3D graphics hardware. The system capability includes, conversion of synthetic visual databases to infrared databases, environmental effects, IR database fly through, and modeling the characteristics of specific FLIRs.
