DIRSIG Introduction and Updates
Dr. Scott Brown
Senior Staff Scientist
Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science, RIT
Head of the Modeling and Simulation group within the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Lab. This group focuses on the modeling of airborne and space-based passive and active EO/IR imaging systems. Scott’s specific expertise is the mentoring of student and staff research projects and the implementation and integration of complex radiation propagation codes. Since 1994, he has been the lead for the physics-driven image and data simulation model called DIRSIG. This model is elaborate software architecture for radiation propagation across the EO/IR region. The capabilities of the model range from passive temperature calculations to active time-gated, LIDAR predictions. The model consists of nearly a million lines of C++ and is externally distributed to government organizations and contractors. Scott routinely conducts on- and off-site training courses that are attended by the professional community regarding the use of the remote sensing modeling and simulation tools developed at RIT and general remote sensing system design and phenomenology.
