Paper Abstract

A computer program has been developed to provide closed-loop infrared imagery of composite targets and backgrounds in real- time. This program operates on parametric databases generated off-line by computationally intensive first principle physics codes such as the Composite Hardbody and Missile Plume (CHAMP) program, Synthetic Scene Generation Model (SSGM), and Multi- Spectral Modeling and Analysis (MSMA/Irma program. The parametric databases allow dynamic variations in flight and engagement scenarios to be modeled as closed-loop guidance and control algorithms modify the operational dynamics. The program is tightly coupled with the parametric databases to produce infrared radiation results in real-time and OpenGL graphic libraries to interface with high performance graphic hardware. The program is being sponsored for development by the Kinetic Kill Vehicle Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulator facility of the Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate located at Eglin AFB, Florida.
