Paper Abstract

Infrared Search and Track (IRST) systems are designed to automatically detect, locate, and track infrared objects and targets. A generic method for predicting the detection performance of an IRST is presented in which the effect of a 3D cluttered background can be considered. The performance predictor includes models of a target, background, atmospheric attenuation, IR sensor of the IRST, and it also includes algorithms for target detection.
