Optical and infrared sensors have an important role to play in modern military engagements, as the deployment of passive Systems increases. To guarantee the efficient development and usage of such equipment, at a reasonable cost, a reliable and realistic simulation of sensor performance is fundamental. The research project presented in this thesis consists of two parts. First, basic software modules that characterize the target-detector radiative transfer problem were developed. This was accomplished by developing separate modules for each physical aspect of the problem. The second part concerned the viability of implementing the physics of such real-world radiative transfer effects into existing military simulation tools. The chosen simulation environment for this effort was NPS Platform Foundation, an existing simulating software package that was developed at the Naval Postgraduate School.
