Abstract
Missile defense systems like AEGIS and THAAD depend upon having prior knowledge of the signature characteristics of the threat missile in order to perform the necessary system functions to defeat the threat. Thus, the role of signature simulation (both radar and optical) technology is critical for this purpose. This Phase II SBIR will develop a robust, user oriented modeling and simulation code suite to predict RV/Wake signatures (radar and optical). This simulation code suite will contain all important reentry physics and be fully validated via comparisons with a library of legacy RV/wake signature data to ensure a good understanding of the physical models contained within the suite.
