A brief introduction to SAFIR
SAFIR is a fully functional electro-optic simulator that has been developed for civilian and defence applications. Its main capability is to produce photo-realistic rendering of 3D scenes.
SAFIR can produce high fidelity synthetic imagery for any land, air and naval scenarios. As a spectral simulator, this software is able to provide, accurate synthetic images/videos, for many EO sensors between 0.3 and 25 micron (airborne or satellite based, inband, multi-spectral, hyper-spectral, laser, flash imagery…).
Based on an effective and radiometrically accurate spectral ray-tracer, this physically-based synthetic scene generator calculates the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a digital model, meant to represent as faithfully as possible the reality of a given scene.
A thorough knowledge of the 3D geometry, including buildings, objects, vehicles, and targets, as well as the characteristics and physical properties of the materials, is required.
SAFIR makes an extensive use of physical models (material properties, thermal activity, radiometry, atmospheric models, etc), to achieve the best possible level of realism. This approach guarantees the physical validity of this work and effective error controls.
SAFIR’s objective is to support the EO community. Its innovative architecture has been developed with interoperability in mind. Its modularity permits to exploit either its own models or other reference software.
Also, many interactive and intuitive tools dedicated to GIS and 3D data management, materials editing, scenarios and image analysis, are associated with SAFIR.
