19 September 2016 The influence of meteorological parameters on dynamic infrared signatures
Author Affiliations +
Most models that predict the infrared signature of an object are based on steady-state equilibrium conditions and do not model the dynamic nature of the real world. To gain more understanding of the dynamic infrared signatures of an object, several outdoor experiments were performed, using a CUBI and a small vessel as an object. Dynamic changes were (intentionally) made to the object, while the temperatures of the facets, the meteorological parameters, and the infrared signature were being monitored. The influence of environmental parameters on the dynamic infrared signature of an object is discussed in this paper. A first attempt to model the decrease in object temperature is made.
