Paper Abstract

Evaluation of military ground combat vehicle system's IR signature has in the past been a time consuming measurements using a thermal camera. Many limitations exists using modify and measure techniques for thermal signature design and analysis including cost, logistics and limited data sets. One further consideration occurs if the thermal signature of a concept system is to be evaluated at the CAD/CAM stage of development. To help solve these problems, the background and, target are simulated using high fidelity thermal prediction models. This paper will present recent advances in background and target thermal models. Several examples and image sequences will be presented showing detection performance through dynamic scenes.
