Paper Abstract

Techniques and tools for validation of real-time infrared target signature models are presented. The model validation techniques presented in this paper were developed for hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulations at the U.S. Army Missile Command's Research, Development, and Engineering Center. Real-time target model validation is a required deliverable to the customer of a HWIL simulation facility and is a critical part of ensuring the fidelity of a HWIL simulation. There are two levels of real-time target model validation. The first level is comparison of the target model to some baseline or measured data which answers the question 'are the simulation inputs correct?' The second level of validation is a simulation validation which answers the question 'for a given target model input are the simulation hardware and software generating the correct output?' This paper deals primarily with the first level of target model validation.
