I have a WV3 SWIR 8 band TIL file, and do not have ATCOR. I only have Rapid Atmospheric in Spatial Modeler 2018.
How would I do this? I cannot seem to get it to work with the IMD or XML file.
Does Rapid Atmospheric only work with the 8 band VNIR files for WV3? Is there a data type issue with uint8 instead of uint16 for the SWIR bands?

The Rapid Atmospheric operator only works with the WorldView-3 VNIR variant, not SWIR (as mentioned in the Help).
The algorithm used by Rapid Atmospheric (and Generic Atmospheric) operator relies on the presence of the visible (R,G, B) and NIR wavelength bands to be able to perform its processing. So SWIR data cannot be processed.There may be other ways to adjust to reflectance values with SWIR data, but I haven't played with it much myself. Perhaps there's others on the Community who can comment?

The ATCOR Workflow for ERDAS IMAGINE product does support atmospheric correction of WorldView-3 SWIR data:
