Paper Abstract

The U.S. Army CECOM Center for Night Vision and Electro-Optics (C2NVEO) has originated a facility for Computer-generation of Realistic Environments with Atmospheres for Thermal Imagery with Optics and Noise (CREATION). Its application to produce imagery for two visual test series is discussed. Panoramic views of synthetic generic landscapes, with different degrees of clutter and inserted tanks, were produced for a search experiment. Close-up thermograms of vehicles were processed to simulate the impact of different thermal detector organizations, then used to analyze sampling effects. The methods of generating synthetic imagery chosen for these two tasks are compared to software that is readily available and reasons for the particular choices are given.
