Abstract
The Real-Time Champ (RTC) infrared (IR) scene generation model created by Kinetics, Inc. has been acknowledged to provide unique technological advancements in IR scene rendering. In this Phase I SBIR proposal, Envisioneering proposes to identify specificaircraft models that are of near-term need by the user community for inclusion in the RTC database, investigate the level of detail required in each model to ensure reasonable computational times without compromising details that might affect the accuracyof model predictions, and review the interfaces of end users to ensure compatibility. Specific areas of investigation will include the aircraft geometric representation, the thermal model, the plume model, optical/IR properties, and validation of theaccuracy of the model. There currently are several users of the RTC IR scene generation model. This SBIR study will result in an IR code with additional high-value targets with accurate 3D physical drawings, which will not bog down the processing speedof the hardware-in-the-loop simulator. This increased capability is expected to expand the use of this code among U.S. DoD and NATO agencies, military aircraft designers, and commercial aircraft designers. Envisioneering has been a key member inaccomplishing this on other IR modeling codes.
