Abstract
The detectability of ground targets in both the visual and thermal infrared spectral regions is dependent on the details of the vehicle's signature and the characteristics of the scene background. Commonly used signature characteristics, such as visual contrast or thermal temperature contrast, are insufficient for use in the sensor and countermeasure systems. This paper discusses the use of an imaging simulation approah to address this difficulty.
