1 May 2009 Empirical modeling and results of NIR clutter for tactical missile warning
Author Affiliations +
A tactical airborne multicolor missile warning testbed was developed as part of an Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) initiative focusing on the development of sensors operating in the near infrared where commercially available silicon detectors can be used. The presentation will detail the new background and clutter data collections from ground and flight operations and results. It will outline the statistical analysis in both detection and guard bands to provide a basis for evaluation of sensor performance against missile and hostile fire threats. A general stochastic model for the NIR clutter will be presented and validity compared against flight data.
