Paper Abstract

A computer simulation of head-on infrared emission from missile noses has been performed. Both cruise missiles and tactical ballistic missiles were considered; results indicate a strong dependence of the emitted radiation on physical and geometrical properties of aerodynamic surfaces, flow character in the boundary layer and atmospheric characteristics. The model allows to give an order-of-magnitude estimate of radiant intensity in the 8-12 μm and 3-5 μm spectral bands and to determine their relative merits as far as the target detection is concerned.
