Paper Abstract

The Missile-Enhanced Thermal Image Model (METIM) is a menu-driven computer model which simulates the performance of autonomous seeker missiles in battlefield situations. Its capacity to synthesize targets and backgrounds account for natural and artificial obscurants, and model missile track and flight operations provide a flexible analysis tool for the evaluation of autonomous seeker missile hardware. This paper chronicles the development of the simulation, discusses the current status of the model, and presents future plans. Results from the model are shown.
