Paper Abstract

The Air Force Research Laboratory develops the Advanced IR Countermeasures Assessment Model (AIAM), an in-house analysis tool for the National Air Intelligence Center (NAIC). AIAM allows NAIC analysts to predict the most effective countermeasure response by a foreign aircraft when engaged by IR missiles. This paper discusses enhancements to AIAM. These enhancements include the addition of IRCM decoys with lift and thrust forces and IRCMs with large spatial extent. A model is added which represents the IR emission form aircraft engines as an extended plume in addition to a point source. A Flare Toolkit is included, allowing the analyst to create a custom flare based on whatever information is available for use in the engagement simulation. A model for the trajectory followed by an IRCM attached to a flexible tether is added.
