Paper Abstract

Raytheon Missile Systems Company operates all digital and real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulations in support of infrared guided missile development. These simulations exercise the missile guidance algorithms with inputs reflective of an engagement scenario. When air to air weapon system is achieved it receives pointing cues from the launcher and the infrared seeker slaves to acquire the target image within its field of view. The images are processed by the tracker algorithms to locate salient features in the scene. The resulting target track provides a precise target-relative position update for missile guidance.
