The current state of the art in synthetic radiometrically accurate scene generation for visual signatures remains immature. Even more difficult is creating composite images of photo-realistic synthetic images placed into images of real scenes. A potential solution to this problem is to use measured background data to drive the target rendering process. This approach has the advantage of deriving synthetic images with sufficient fidelity for inputs into the visual laboratory and performance codes. Since scene luminance can change rapidly, especially during partly cloudy conditions, all measurements must be obtained nearly simultaneously. This paper will explore the requirements for a visual predictive code and meeting these requirements with a background measurement process. A prototype measurement system will be described along with results from measurements.
