This contract report presents the first implementation phase of 3D infrared signature modelling compatible with the KARMA simulation environment developed on behalf of Defence Research and Development Canada – Valcartier in the framework of Public Works and Government Services Canada contract number W7701-052709/001/QCL “Development and exercise simulation”. The main objective of this first implementation is to demonstrate the feasibility and the benefits of 3D infrared signature modelling as opposed to punctual signatures. Free and open source software as well as commercial offthe- shelf tools have been considered, allowing the reduction of the implementation time and increasing reliability. This report is presented as a developer’s guide of the infrared scene generation module and describes the implementation of the scene generation process tailored to KARMA. The first implementation phase of 3D infrared signatures improves signature modelling in KARMA and demonstrates the applicability of a 3D viewer for infrared scene generation and the higher level of fidelity that is reached for infrared guided weapon engagement simulations. However, the current implementation could be improved to offer precomputations and support the former punctual signatures.
