CTISR is developer of the Air Force Institute of Technology Sensor & Scene Emulation Tool (ASSET), a physics-based image-chain model used to generate synthetic electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) sensor data with realistic radiometric properties, noise characteristics, and sensor artifacts.
ASSET was developed to meet the need for applications where large volumes of data with precise knowledge of the underlying truth is required but is impractical to obtain for real sensors. Its development has been sponsored by numerous DoD organizations including the Space and Missile Systems Center, National Air and Space Intelligence Center, and Air Force Research Laboratories.
ASSET is available to U.S. Government agencies and their contractors.
