Paper Abstract

Self protection of airborne assets has been important to the Air Force and DoD community for many years. The greatest threats to aircraft continue to be man portable air defense missiles and ground fire. AFRL has been pursuing a near-IR sensor approach that has shown to have better performance than midwave IR systems with much lower costs. SIMAC couples multiple spatial and temporal filtering techniques to provide the needed clutter suppression in the NIR missile warning systems. Results from flight tests will be discussed .
