Paper Abstract

In the future, modern airliners will use enhanced-synthesic vision systems (ESVS) to improve aeronautical operations in bad weather conditions. Before ESVS are effectively found aboard airliners, one must develop a multisensor flight simulator capable of synthetizing, in real time, images corresponding to a variety of imaging modalities. We present a real-time simulator called ARIS (Airborne Radar and Infrared Simulator) which is capable of generating two such imaging modalities: a forward-looking infrared (FLIR) and a millimeter-wave radar (MMWR) imaging system. The proposed simulator is modular sothat additional imaging modalities can be added. Example of images generated by the simulator are shown.
