Paper Abstract

Range of detection and time of performance criteria for missile warning (MWS) and infra read search and track (IRST) systems rely on a vast number of design parameters, as well as design approach (e.g. spectral range, scanning/staring configurations, etc.). The characteristics of the potential targets are as important as the system design. We present a robust performance evaluation techniques that rely upon various statistical models for background, sensor noises and target signature behaviors. The performance evaluation results are well supported by actual field test results.
