Abstract:

THE EFFECT OF ATMOSPHERE-INDUCED RADIATIVE EMISSIONS ON SEN-SOR SYSTEMS OF KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. AT THE HIGH VELOCITIES OF PALNNED KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS, COLLISIONS WITH IN VEHICLE SENSOR BANDWIDTHS. THESE EMISSIONS WOULD BE FROM ELECTRONICALLY EXCITED MOLECULAR STATES IN THE UV/VISIBLE AND FROM HIGHLY VIBRATIONALLY EXCITED STATES IN THE IR. THUS, MANY SENSOR BANDPASSES MAY BE EFFECTED BY THE LIKELY MOLECULAR RADIATORS.
