Abstract
A new Plume Laser Radar Effects Simulation (PLRES) is proposed. The objective is a software tool that predicts observables resulting from laser illumination of missile exhaust plumes and wakes. PLRES requires an imported flowfield that prescribesproperties of molecular and condensed phase particulate species. Flow solutions for mean and Reynolds-averaged turbulence in two and three dimensions as well as instantaneous realizations of turbulent flows (large eddy simulations, for example) will beaccommodated. The simulation will include spatial, temporal, Doppler, and polarization resolved backscatter imagery from non-spherical particles. Multiple scatter effects and attenuation by particulate and molecular species are included. Phase Iincludes evaluation and demonstration of the models for these plume-laser observables and a plan for the code structure and their implementation in a comprehensive simulation software tool. This simulation exploits extensive common components of the MDAPhase II SBIR
