Abstract
ABSTRACT: This effort entails theoretical development, software development, hardware implementation and testing to support the objectives of generating realistic synthetic scenes for use across the defense community in order to adequately test and evaluate aimpoint maintenance and track algorithms for High-Energy Laser (HEL) systems. BENEFIT: As HEL weapon systems mature, there is a growing need to simulate the complex interactions of the HEL and the target in the context of a closed-loop tracking system. A high-fidelity synthetic scene generation capability would allow the robustness of the proposed system's tracking and pointing performance to be explored in a more cost-effective manner.
