Paper Abstract

This paper describes how the measurement and prediction activities have been integrated to obtain a complete and accurate characterization of a target, even when it is not possible to know a priori part of the prediction code's inputs. We particularly emphasize the meticulous care given to the design and realization of our system for the acquisition of IR signatures of flying air targets. This attenuation was aimed at improving the target's stability in the center of the sensor's FOV, in order to optimize the quality of the data from early on in the acquisition phase, and to allow the use of interframe processing techniques during the elaboration phase. A good level of agreement between the simulated and the measured aircraft signatures is obtained, especially when alterations induced by the imaging radiometer are taken into account.
