This paper presents a dynamic simulation loop that gives tracking results for a two-color concentric annular ring (CAR) reticle seeker. Our simulation tool includes a target flare model and a proportional navigation guidance loop. The CAR reticle system's performance and the flare effects are analyzed in various scenarios. When a flare is present in the field of view, the simulation results show that the reticle seeker cannot maintain precise target tracking. We propose a two-color countercountermeasure using the least-mean-square method to cope with a presence of infrared (IR) flares. The proposed method makes use of simultaneous processing of the modulation output in two IR wavelength bands. One is the midwave IR (a primary input signal), and the other is the shortwave IR (a reference input signal). Simulation results have shown that our adaptive algorithm can achieve effective cancellation of flare signals with high intensity.
