The Multi-targets and Backgrounds Simulation (MTBS) was a computer model which generated infrared dynamic images detected by the shipborne infrared warning system in battlefield situations. A 3D scene was built. The targets distributed in a hemisphere whose center was the sensor of the infrared warning system. The background ought to be the sky or the sea. It could analyze the infrared characteristic of the targets and backgrounds. Combining the atmosphere attenuation, the energy accepted by the sensor could be determined. All the parameters of the targets and backgrounds were managed orderly. With the 3D scene and battlefield effects, dynamic images could be obtained with computer. MTBS was composed of eight modules linked by a main routine. Each module performed its specific task in the overall simulation framework. MTBS also provided an effective tool to evaluate the performance of infrared warning system in laboratory instead of outfields experiments.
