Paper Abstract

The association of optronic and radar sensors significantly improves comt'at aircraft potential. After having studied the fusion and estimation algorithms required by this association,Thomson-CSF has set-up a ground experiment in order to evaluate the performance of a combined radar-optronic system in short and medium range aerial combat.A system of this type can be used in association with fire-control systems (gun or missile). The experiment combines a RDM radar, an ATLIS TV tracking pod and will be completed later with an ASPIC IRST. The potential interest of the combined use of radar and optronic is presented with the experimental conditions and the main results obtained
