Paper Abstract

The generative technique of the dynamic infrared image was discussed in this paper. Because infrared sensor differs from CCD camera in imaging mechanism, it generates the infrared image by incepting the infrared radiation of scene (including target and background). The infrared imaging sensor is affected deeply by the atmospheric radiation, the environmental radiation and the attenuation of atmospheric radiation transfers. Therefore at first in this paper the imaging influence of all kinds of the radiations was analyzed and the calculation formula of radiation was provided, in addition, the passive scene and the active scene were analyzed separately. Then the methods of calculation in the passive scene were provided, and the functions of the scene model, the atmospheric transmission model and the material physical attribute databases were explained. Secondly based on the infrared imaging model, the design idea, the achievable way and the software frame for the simulation software of the infrared image sequence were introduced in SGI workstation. Under the guidance of the idea above, in the third segment of the paper an example of simulative infrared image sequences was presented, which used the sea and sky as background and used the warship as target and used the aircraft as eye point. At last the simulation synthetically was evaluated and the betterment scheme was presented.
