Paper Abstract

Twenty years ago, work was initiated to consider the feasibility of using pyramidal domes for dual-mode air-to-air missile applications. The present contribution concerns the degradation in the performance of the infrared subsystem that results from the aerodynamic heating of such domes, under conditions representative of anticipated most-severe launch environments for internal and external missile-carry configurations. The problem is formulated in a general but compact form compatible with the state of the art of contemporary infrared technology.
