 In light of our ever changing landscape concerning COVID-19 we have made the decision to cancel our Ontar Corporation sessions being held in Anaheim on April 28th and 29th 2020. We regret having to make the decision but it is based on the concern for are registrants health and well-being.  In lieu of this announcement we will be hosting online webinars covering the same content. Those already registered  for our Anaheim sessions will have access to these at no additional costs. Please visit the website and stay tuned to further announcements as we set new dates.  Thank You!

Ontar Corporation Sessions

Anaheim Marriott

Anaheim CA.

April 28 and 29th 2020

Educational Sessions Announced!!!

We invite you to choose the sessions that will most help you. Choose a single session or all! Our sessions span a wide variety of offerings for novice, intermediate and advanced users and for those simply interested in learning about our software. We will cover both basic model calculations and advanced capabilities such as detailed aerosol modeling. Attendees are encouraged to bring their specific scenarios and share them with the group at all our sessions for discussion purposes. 

By attending one or all of our Ontar sessions we will help you solve your problems using software tools with emphasis on PcModWin ®/MODTRAN®. We will familiarize new users with our software features and teach advanced users tricks and tips to get desired results. We will also discuss methods and models for calculating target detections. 

Note: We will use PcModWin6, however the discussions will apply equally well to users of older versions. 

Sessions do not need to be taken in consecutive order. There are no prerequisites to attend any session offerings. 

Sessions are 4 hours in length unless otherwise noted.*

CHOOSE YOUR OWN PATH! $299.00 Per Session OR Attend all six for $1,199!!!

Session Descriptions:

Session 1:  Beginners and new users

Tuesday, April 28th  

8:30am to 12:30pm

This session will introduce users to models for calculating atmospheric transmission and radiance; and target detection calculation. We will review basic inputs and how to quickly get meaningful results. 

This session is for you if you are a beginner and want to know what the models can,and cannot do.

Session 2: Attendees or users with some familiarity with the models.

Tuesday, April 28th   

1:30pm to 5:30pm

This session will review all the major features of PcModWin/MODTRAN with more advanced calculations including multiple scattering, model atmospheres etc. Examples of different scenarios will be discussed to meet your requirements.

Users are encouraged to bring their calculations.


Tuesday, April 28 

6:00pm to 9:00pm 

Basics of point source target detection 

Session 4: Suited for previous session attendees and/or users who have some familiarity with MODTRAN.

Wednesday, April 29  

8:30am to 12:30pm 

This session will go into advanced topic such as setting up custom atmospheres, radiosonde inputs, more advanced aerosol/cloud/fog modeling, and scattering theory. We will setup complex scenario.

Users are encouraged to bring their calculations.

Session 5:  Suited for previous session attendees or anyone who is are wants to be a proficient MODTRAN user. For advanced users.

Wednesday, April 29  

1:30pm to 5:30pm

This session is for the person who will be the “expert” in your organization. We will review ALL MODTRAN inputs and output. Emphasis will be on all aerosol options and other advanced inputs.  Users are encouraged to bring their calculations.


Wednesday, April 29 

6:00pm to 9:00pm

Emphasis of NVThermIP and NVIPM

How sampling theory affected model evolution

Imaging system chain analysis (MTF analysis)

How atmospheric transmission affects the signal to noise ratio system design – the importance of the atmospheric transmission
