DIRSIG Development to Support Surface Zone Modeling Tool
The RIT DIRS Laboratory develops and maintains a high fidelity, radiometrically accurate simulation tool named DIRSIG. This tool generates radiance scenes that mainly represent structures and areas on the ground as seen by a remote sensing instrument. The primary goal of this effort is to optimize DIRSIG capabilities in the maritime regime where imaging the dynamic air-sea surface and transparent water bulk pose different challenges than imaging land. In this effort, DIRSIG developers will work with Arete Associates to extend the model to the maritime regime.
