Background

NATO and partners operate in hostile environments, deploying vehicles in the land, sea and air domains. These vehicles are frequently detected and engaged by electro-optical systems, and in particular systems operating in the infra-red region of the spectrum. A previous group (AVT-232) has conducted a review of the validation status of a subset of military vehicles (namely air platform and missile plume radiation). This group proposes to extend this work to cover ‘full’ platform EO/IR signatures.

Objectives

To identify codes, processes and algorithms appropriate for the assessment of EO & IR signatures different types of military systems, and to state the relevant validation status.

Topics

IR signature generation processes, including thermal, reflection, radiation (solid and gases), propagation and detection
