Abstract

The computer model sensat-2 has been developed for remote sensing uses of passive sensors in the 1–28-μm infrared spectral region. The model calculates the IR signature of up to three homogeneous objects in the instantaneous field of view of the sensor. For the atmospheric part, model lowtran-6 is used within sensat-2. Model sensat-2 can be used for mission analysis of sensors on different platforms like ground-based, aircraft, or satellite. It is a useful design tool for simulating and assessing the radiometric relations that are indispensable in designing sensors. Further uses include the comparison of measurements with simulation results and the radiometric correction of measurements.
