This paper presents an UltraViolet-Visible (UV-Vis) spectral radiance simulation capability for Non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (non-LTE) conditions, consisting of a full line-by-line (LBL) radiative transfer (RT) algorithm and a UV-Vis signatures library. Results are presented for two example scenarios where strong UV-Vis emissions arise, an atmospheric high altitude auroral event and a High Explosive (HE) detonation.
