Paper Abstract

Results of recent research efforts to quantify effects of battlefield countermeasure smokes on electro-optical sensor performance are presented. The approach is through modeling and testing with emphasis on comparison of modeling theories with results from major smoke effectiveness field tests. The scope of the modeling includes effects of extinction, scattering and (thermal) emission for scenarios from the visible through the infrared. The work represents preliminary results of a long range effort to couple all factors which ultimately effect sophisticated electro-optical sensors. Special emphasis is given to modeling path radiance.
