Abstract:

Next generation ballistic missile warning, defense and surveillance systems need to anticipate, through modeling and simulation, the background radiation of the battlespace environment, including geometries that intercept the ocean background. This objective requires prior knowledge of the environmental radiance conditions for development of optimal sensors and detection approaches. Much work has been done to create ocean background models, but what is needed is an innovative architecture that efficiently and seamlessly unifies existing, improved, and/or new computer code, along with access to satellite measurements of ocean parameters, in a consistent and fully integrated computer environment that can be utilized in a plug-and-play fashion by state-of-the-art background radiation codes, such as SAMM, FLITES, the Synthetic Scene Generation Model (SSGM), and the Objective Simulation Framework (OSF) to meet missile warning and defense surveillance needs. This proposed effort will result in an innovative software product called the OCEANUS (Ocean Universal Scene) Model. OCEANUS will provide MDA with an innovative ocean scene model that incorporates ocean composition, ocean dynamics, the marine boundary layer, the land-sea interface, and the ocean observables in the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared portions of the spectrum.
