Ondulus IR

Ondulus IR gives the ability to add physics-based IR sensors simulation to your applications

Ondulus IR is part of the Presagis M&S Suite, a unique end-to-end modeling & simulation framework that comprises database and 3D modeling tools, sensor material classification tools, computer generated forces, and FlightSIM & HeliSIM for flight dynamics modeling.

Ondulus IR dynamically takes into account radiation loading, cooling, conduction, convection & evaporation. Computation is available for any time of day, any time of year, under any atmospheric conditions and at any location on the planet for the energy exchanged between the sun and different materials.

Ondulus IR

Key Features

Ondulus IR is:

A real time sensor simulation solution, based on mathematical & physics laws and equations, which is geared at providing a highly accurate  and customizable physics-based simulated results.

Ondulus IR offers support for complex composite materials:

  • Terrain materials:
    • Surface layers representing material such as concrete road, grass field, mountain rocks.
    • Sub-layers such as soil, sand, limestone.
  • Culture building materials:
    • Surface layers representing material such as asphalt, roof, brick wall, glass window.
    • Insulation layers such as fiberglass, glass-wool, air.
    • Inner layers such as wood, fiberboard.
  • Water surfaces :
    • Surface layers representing oceans, lakes, rivers.
    • Surface thickness ( water depth ) derived from bathymetric data.

Ondulus IR offers fully correlated sensor simulation:

  • 4  types of views included.
    • Electro Optic camera view
    • Thermal view
    • Radiance view
    • Infrared view                  

Ondulus IR comes with a fully modularized sensor simulation framework:

Comprehensive Toolset

The Power of CDB

Through CDB, Ondulus IR users develop rich ground material databases that can cover the whole earth, and offer multi-user and multi-resolution points of view to enable even the most stringent IR applications.

 Wide Export Capabilities

Developed in Canada, Ondulus Radar is a product that can be integrated in any solution, allowing it to be deployed and supported almost anywhere in the world.

Fully Configurable IR Parameters

Ondulus IR offers Application Programming Interface (API) control of parameters such as; ambient conditions subsystem, time, location, sun elevation, air temperature, wind, rain, solar radiation, custom transmittance data file, absorption and scattering to name a few.

Ondulus IR is fully integrated into Presagis Material Attribution workflows:

  • Use Terra Vista APT to procedurally generated materials for accurate and real-time simulations.
  • Use Creator to extract material information from raster imagery to increase the level of realism simulation.
