Paper Abstract

An enhanced thermal prediction model has been developed for weapon system performance analyses. Model development and validation was conducted as part of an effort to quantify the adverse weather capability of autonomous precision guided munitions. The emphasis was on modeling the thermal signatures of fixed, high value targets such as bridges and power plants. The techniques developed are directly applicable to modeling target and background features in IR wavebands that are used by model-based target recognition algorithms.
