Simulation of FLIR and LADAR data using graphics animation software

G. Powell, R. Martin, D. Marshall, K. Markham
Proceedings the Eighth Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications  
This paper presents an implementation of Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) and Laser Radar (LADAR) data simulation for use in developing a multi-sensor datafusion automated target recognition (ATR) system  ...  These data are used to create a variety of images to aid in the visualisation of the data and test our ATR system. Frames from approach sequences show the LADAR and FLIR data in different formats.  ...  We also wish to thank John Black for his assistance with infrared simulation.  ...
