There is an implementation of "6S" in GRASS:
 -> i.atcorr: 6S atmospheric correction program (Christo Zietsman, South Africa)

Concerning terrain correction we are suggesting a simple method
with r.mapcalc etc in our book (http://mpa.itc.it/grassbook/).
Basically it is using the terrain geometry (slope, aspect), sun position
and the calculation of a normalized map. The upcoming second edition of
the book will describe a slightly improved method. It's not very
An older version is here (my MSc thesis, 1999):
(click onto the right buttons to proceed).

You should be sure to have an elevation model with a resolution
which corresponds to the resolution of the aerial or satellite image.
