Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss the sensor modeling capabilities of the Universal Programmable Interface and the supporting software and hardware. Sensor modeling capabilities include image blurring due to the sensor's modulation transfer function and pixel effects. A sensor modeling and analysis software tool, based on FLIR92, will be discussed. A technique for modeling other sensor effects will also be presented. This technique, called pixel displacement processing, can model geometric distortion, physical sensor jitter, and other user specified effects. It can also be used to accurately perform latency compensation.
