Paper Abstract

The Infrared Atmospheric and Signature Prediction Model (IASPM) project made a complex IR signature code accessible with a user-friendly interface, in a PC environment. That work provides the basis for the Electro-optical Model for Aerial Targeting (EMAT). EMAT will consist of an X-Window graphical user interface (GUI) controlling a diverse suite of model codes in a UNIX environment. Model codes include air and surface targets, atmospheres, backgrounds, and sensor models in the IR, visible, and UV domains. In addition to controlling the models the interface features many graphical and textual analysis features, as well as image processing capabilities. Hypertext and AI techniques are utilized to help the analyst along with the general ease of use afforded by the interface. Database capabilities help the analyst organize both input and output data. CAD interfaces are provided to assist in the integration of target objects. The EMAT software is highly portable and available for a range of workstation platforms.
