Presagis Sensor Products bring together a comprehensive set of optional modules and tools for the development of correlated and accurate IR and NVG scenes.
Delivered as integrated Vega Prime modules, IR and NVG displays can be easily added to any Vega Prime application. Sensor displays can be developed through either the LynX Prime graphical user interface for greater efficiency and productivity or through a C++ Application Programming Interface (API) for increased flexibility. Numerous samples are provided to enhance productivity out-of-the-box.
IR and NVG displays use the same geometry and are fully correlated with the out-the-window visual environment.
Vega Prime IR Scene computes and displays quantitative sensor images of natural features, cultural features, and dynamic objects at real-time frame rates. With the Vega Prime IR/NVG Sensor Module, users can add realistic sensor effects to scenes generated with Vega Prime IR Scene to match the characteristics of a wide range of sensors.
The Terra Vista Material Classification Module prepares and creates the sensor textures used by the scene generation software to accurately render the characteristics of the sensor scene. The module provides the accurate generation of large area geo-specific IR and NVG capable Virtual Textures, as well as geo-typical sensor texture generation tools.
TMM is an offline tool that performs the material classification of textures in a visual/sensor database. With TMM, the materials themselves are contained in a user-extensible database that also includes descriptions according to wavelength-dependent reflectance, heat-transfer, and radar properties. TMM is included with licenses of the Terra Vista Mat. TMM is an offline tool that performs the material classification of textures in a visual/sensor database.
Vega Prime IR Scene computes and displays quantitative sensor images of any environment containing natural features, cultural features, and dynamic objects. Sensor Products utilize OpenFlight, the same source geometry as Vega Prime, and provides fully correlated out the window and sensor views.
Vega Prime IR Sensor allows users to add realistic sensor effects to scenes generated with Vega Prime IR Scene that match the characteristics of a wide variety of sensors, including electro-optical (EO) imagers, night vision goggles (NVGs), and medium and long wave infrared devices.
The Vega Prime Atmospheric Module is an offline GUI-based tool that provides the atmospheric properties used in a sensor scene—including geographical location and atmospheric conditions—along with computed data—including solar and lunar energy reaching surfaces and surface temperatures—that are relevant for a given simulation. This module is used for calculating atmospheric transmission and radiance at low altitudes for line-of-sight paths within the atmosphere and for paths that intersect with the earth’s surface.
