Paper Abstract

A MATLAB-based model has been generated for a range of senors used in Missile Approach Warner (MAW) applications. The sensors modelled operate over the ultra-violet, mid and far infrared bands and include indium antimonide, thermal and multi-quantum well technologies. The primary purpose of the model is the evaluation and comparison of different sensor technologies against a range of missile threats. Signatures may be calculated for real or user-specified missile and platform trajectories. Alternatively, real signature data can be imported directly into the model to support trials analysis. Outputs include tabular and graphical data such as trajectories, detection range and signal to noise ratio.
