ABSTRACT
Efficient image generation techniques for electro-optical (EO) system simulation are presented. The techniques reduce computation time by orders of magnitude so Monte Carlo simulations become practical. Ray tracing to project signals onto a focal plane and convolution to blur projected images are time consuming so methods that minimize this time are most important. Methods for efficient simulation of detector characteristics, including noise, are also described.<>
