Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of initial testing of a computer simulation model which has been designed for use by persons not necessarily expert in all or any of the disciplines involved in signature analysis, and which can be utilized for evaluating sensor system performance and prediction of sensor acquisition ranges. The ATIMS III airborne turret infrared measurement system, ifight expenments, and the IASPM simulation model are described. Analysis of preliminary results comparing experimental data with simulated data for the 2 - 5 and 8 - 12 micron IR bands reveal the potential of the model for simulating a multitude of sensor-observed phenomena. Model strengths and shortcomings are discussed.
