Abstract
Missile exhaust plume radiant emission is a key observable for any missile defense system using optical sensors. Scene generation has become an important component within MDA to assess the performance of the BMDS system, and accurate rendering of the target during boost is essential for proper testing of system elements. The objective of this effort is to extend the use of image morphing techniques from 2D radiance space to 3D plume flowfield space in order to interpolate or extrapolate 3D simulations to other conditions in near real time.
