Paper Abstract

The performance of laser signature analysis requires a diverse set of simulations and analysis tools. A key computer program for calculating target laser signatures is described as one component of the required set of tools. The program, referred to as the Laser Signature Code, version 2 (LSC-2), computes resolved and unresolved cross section, scattered field quantities, and can account for a number of observable effects, such as beam illumination, aperture diffraction, speckle noise effects, encounter dynamics, and near-field measurement geometry. A specific example is presented to demonstrate the code's utility.
