The proposed Phase II effort consists of upgrading a version of IRGENR, an existing IR scene simulator, for real-time operation, then integrating the upgraded IRGENR with the Compu-Scene image generation system at NATC. The result will be an IR Scene Generator, which will function simultaneously with the normal visual scene generator to produce IR imagery video. The final system will include LOWTRAN for atmospheric effects, and will produce intensity variations for dynamically changing IR surfaces in real time. The integrated system will be operationally and functionally consistent with normal Compu-Scene operation, permitting the addition of moving models through normal Compu-Scene workstation interaction. The program includes validation against FLIR imagery, to ensure an accurate and correct simulation of IR scenes.
