Paper Abstract

The multisensor analysis tool (MSAT) was developed as a software aid for the design and parametric analysis of electro-optical sensors and multisensor suites. An executable version of MSAT is uniquely specified by combining a generic window-based shell with user-supplied sensor knowledge. The application-independent shell utilizes buttons, pull-down menus, plots, on-line help, and a spreadsheet-like interface. Sensor knowledge is supplied by users in the form of those equations which define a model; no programming or debugging is required. MSAT writes source code from this knowledge and links it with the shell. The tool has no concept of either input or output; any parameter may be varied in order to monitor its effects on all other related parameters. MSAT runs on a Sun workstation, comes with full documentation, and has a database which is being continuously populated with new sensor models and knowledge.
