30 April 2007 Third-generation FLIR simulation at NVESD
Author Affiliations +
Third generation FLIR sensors, comprised of 2-D focal plane arrays with simultaneous LWIR/MWIR detection capability, are to be fielded in the near future and are expected to play an important role in future Army sensor applications. NVESD has an effort underway to produce a simulation package that will bring Third Generation FLIR sensor performance to training and wargaming applications. This simulation product provides a wide variety of targets and backgrounds, both rural and urban, for different seasons, times of day, and atmospheric conditions and is built on the existing NVESD LWIR simulation package named NV EOSim. A sensor effects package, which is part of the simulation, uses standard NVTherm sensor decks to accurately simulate the noise, diffraction, resolution, and other design features of individual sensors. The physics of the simulation and the key Third Generation FLIR characteristics incorporated are discussed in detail.
