Air-to-Air Homing Missile has widely adopted infrared seeker, which makes use of thermal energy emitted from the target to detect it exactly. The target is equipped with countermeasure (CM) such as flare to protect itself from homing missile. The purpose of this paper is to develop counter-countermeasure (CCM) to cope with the CM operated by the target. Not only the radiant features of the target but also that of the flare at ultraviolet band have been compared and analyzed to select the band that can effectively remove the effects of the flare. We use a reference level for removal of the noise effects and the background. The simulation results show that our CCM algorithm can detect precisely the target location in spite of the presence of the flare.
