  1. Simulation of Stressing Optical Clutter for Scene Generation

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA04154

    Infrared sensors play an important role in missile defense systems, and continued improvement in their performance is critical as adversary payloads become smaller, cooler, and dimmer. While there can be no substitute for in-situ performance testing, the risks, cost, and development time for future systems can be reduced through accurate scene and sensor simulations. Current scene simulation alg ...
