Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) propose to develop an innovative fast running post-intercept electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) scene generator. This scene generator will incorporate and leverage both PSI"s post-intercept radar debris scene generator PRSIM and APL suite of EO/IR prediction and analysis tools including the re-entry vehicle intercept signature kill assessment models (RISK). The scene generator will exploit parallel computing and incorporate both first principle physics models and fast running engineering models to allow for the rapid generation of post-impact EO/IR scenes for both exo-atmospheric sensors (Phase I) and ground based sensors (Phase II) over a wide range of wavelengths (LWIR, MWIR, and visible). The scene generator will be anchored to the existing test data.
