Paper Abstract

FLIR92 and ACQUIRE have become the standard simulation models used in virtually all Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) system design. Recently, a software program called STADIUM FLIR has been written for use with the U.S. Army's FLIR92 and ACQUIRE models. This software provides many performance and ease of use enhancements for the models. Some of these enhancements include graphical user interfaces for all model parameter entry, data extraction between FLIR92 and ACQUIRE as well as comprehensive plotting of output curves. All data extraction and plotting is automatic and seamless. STADIUM FLIR is based on AET's STADIUM technology which adds powerful Design of Experiments and statistical analysis capabilities to simulation environments. The results are presented both quantitatively and graphically. STADIUM FLIR provides comprehensive plotting capabilities for both raw data as well as `overlayed' statistical variability data. STADIUM FLIR provides the power to perform multiple FLIR92 and ACQUIRE simulations with inputs (even multiple targets) varying over user specified ranges. This paper will describe the software and how it enhances the power of FLIR92 and ACQUIRE.
