Paper Abstract

The IR signature of an aircraft is the result of several major contributions, namely: Hot engine parts of the tail pipe and/or the air intakes; Combustion hot gases (and in some cases hot carbon particles) in the plume; Skin of the airframe, due to the thermal emission resulting from aerodynamic heating and internal heat sources and the reflected ambient radiation from the sun, the sky and the ground. The aim of this paper is to present how the SE-Workbench-EO from OKTAL-SE has been extended in the frame of PRESAGE project (with the financial support of DGA) for computing the IR signature of a jet aircraft taking all these major contributions into account and what kind of results can be obtained both for non real time and real time rendering.
