Abstract
The report describes a two-dimensional computer simulation of a generic IR-guided surface-to-air missile engaging an aircraft flying a low-altitude terrain-following flight path. The simulation, written in Pascal and running on an IBM PC compatible computer, allows the user to enter a number of input parameters that define the aircraft flight path, the missile characteristics and the engagement scenario. User-interactive input/output programs facilitate input data entry and provide simulation outputs in numeric and graphic formats. Output results are also available in the form of a text file that can easily be imported by standard integrated software for further analysis and higher quality graphics. This simulation was developed by Defence Research Establishment Valcartier (DREV) to define the performance requirements for a Missile Approach Warning (MAW) system that would protect the CF-18 against surface-to-air missiles.
