Paper Abstract

Precision munitions employ various electro-optical sensors that enable them to accurately locate and strike targets. These electro-optical sensors perform a variety of functions, including hot spot detection, false target discrimination, stand-off fuzing, range to the target, aimpoint selection and potentially target profiling. Of interest are three primary electro-optic sensor categories: passive IR, active IR and dual mode (IR/MMW) sensors. Examples of fielded and prototype sensors built for these three categories are presented and discussed.
