Abstract:

A near-term low-cost end-to-end optical signature code is proposed which incorporates advanced physical models and simulation methods within a unified code structure to enable unprecedented levels of computational performance (speed, fidelity) for analysisand simulation of target/background signatures (spectra, imagery) for ground/air/space vehicles. The code is designed to support 1) efficient generation of multiband-imagery and spectral-intensity databases for diagnostic analysis or real-time playback,2) dynamic simulation of target-sensor engagement scenarios from tracking in clutter to deployed-object discrimination to interceptor end-game, and 3) cooperative technology development for a next-generation multifunctional Battlefield EnvironmentSimulation Toolkit (BEST). The code incorporates a physics-driven architecture with custom modular components developed by AOI for BMDO under the Virtual Distributed Hardware-in-the-loop Test Bed (VDHTB) project to investigate time/fidelity trades insignature computation. The proposed project applies those lessons learned together with new advanced technologies to create a fast accurate unified signature simulation tool.Military benefits include fast accurate optical scene simulations for tracking,discrimination, targeting, and intercept. Commercial applications include high-fidelity spectral-image analysis for remote sensing.
