Paper Abstract

The Army performance assessment methodology for visual and infrared countermeasures typically uses an area weighted average temperature/contrast (AWAT or AWAC) description of an equivalent uniform target in a uniform background scene. A simplistic target/background description is not sufficient to evaluate most signature countermeasure (CM) applications. This paper analyzes alternative strategies for using a realistic target/background model to achieve valid assessments of CM technology.
