Abstract
AIRBORNE INFRARED (IR) SYSTEMS ARE DIFFICULT TO EVALUATE IN FLIGHT BECAUSE THE COST OF CREATING REALISTIC MISSION SCENARIOS IS OFTEN PROHIBITIVE AND IR SENSOR PERFORMANCE IS DEPENDENT ON THE AMBIENT WEATHER CONDITIONS. AN IR SCENE GENERATOR USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN IR SIMULATOR COULD PROVIDE AN IR SCENE WITH KNOWN CHARACTERISTICS IN WHICH MANY DIFFERENT THREAT CONDITIONS COULD BE PRESENTED FOR EVALUATION. DCS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A PLAN FOR MODIFYING A COMPUSCENE IV SYSTEM TO PRESENT IR SCENERY FOR AIRCRAFT WEAPONS SYSTEM IR SENSOR TEST AND EVALUATION (T&E). AS PART OF THIS PLAN, METHODS FOR INTEGRATING THE LOWTRAN ATMOSPHERIC MODEL WITH THE COMPU-SCENE IV SIMULATOR SOFTWARE WILL BE INVESTIGATED. DCS ALSO PROPOSES TO RESEARCH AVAILABLE IR SIGNATURE DATA TO PROVIDE REALISTIC REPRESENTATIONS OF IR TARGETS FOR SIMULATION. FINALLY, DCS WILL ATTEMPT TO DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY OF SIMULATING A REALISTIC IR ENVIRONMENT USING THE COMPU-SCENE IV.
