Paper Abstract

An evaluating platform for an infrared countermining system was introduced to test the interference and anti- interference performance of each side in the battlefield. The final goal achieved by this platform was to search the best anti-interference algorithm for the infrared guiding system and select the most effective interference mode for the other side. The battlefield environment included the attacker (missile), target (ship), backgrounds (sea and sky) and interference (smoke bomb or flame tracer). In order to select the best anti-interference algorithms for the guiding system, a database which was composed of various recognizing and tracking algorithms was built. To achieve this in hardware, a photoelectric tracker (PET) and a DSP system was used to simulate the infrared guiding missile instead of an actual guider which has only fixed algorithm. There were two evaluating mode, real-time and offline. In real-time mode, the recognizing and tracking algorithm was fixed according to simulate the actual state of the missile. In offline mode, different algorithm could be selected to attain the best anti-interference by replaying the recorded scene.
