Abstract
The use of models to predict exhaust plume observables such as electro-optical (EO) signatures or radar cross section (RCS) is an integral part of many missile defense activities due to the limited quantity and extent of flight measurements on domestic and foreign missiles. The potential exists to improve the accuracy of plume modeling by fusing information from multiple sensor measurements in EO and RCS space in order to extract and validate features of plume phenomenology common to both. This proposal discusses work to develop a 3-D radar scattering code and using model/data fusion concepts to improve code validation.
