6 December 2004 GSIM: a simulator for missile seekers
Author Affiliations +
A simulator (GSIM) for missile seekers that can be used as a general tool in missile seeker performance analysis has been developed. The simulator contains all the subsystems of a typical missile system and can simulate a missile flight scenario from launch, via target acquisition and tracking, to arrival at the target. GSIM has a fully graphical user interface and runs under Matlab on a regular modern PC. Due to a modular approach, the simulator can easily be upgraded and adapted to different prerequisites. It contains a choice of targets against sky, sea or ground backgrounds. Weather conditions, visibility, and time-of-day are taken into account when seeker images are generated. The effects of detector noise and dome heating are also modeled. The results can be presented as movies from the flight, showing both the seeker image as well as trajectories for the missile and target.
