Paper Abstract

This paper describes the development of an IBSM (Image Based System Model) using a UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicle) reconnaissance suite consisting of a visible sensor, IR sensor, and data link as an example. Included in the data chain are target disposition and geometry, atmospheric effects, sensor image chain OTFs (Optical Transfer Functions), data compression and transmission interaction and effects, and data display and/or recording. The presentation will include a description of the process of writing custom Khoros-callable functions expressly for this application of the 4 GL. Interesting behaviors of Khoros discovered during development and the transition from version 1 to version 2 of Khoros will be covered. Emphasis will be on the application of the resulting images and data to the system acquisition process from source selection through test. Growth applications of the techniques developed beyond sensor systems will also be discussed.
