Abstract
Building up on its expertise in modeling of environmental effects on EO-IR sensors performance, DRDC-Valcartier is developing an IR sensing forecasting capability for the Canadian Air Force with the aim of optimizing the effectiveness of operations of EO sensors, and associated weapon systems, based on available environmental and tactical information. The desired outcome is a significant improvement of efficiency of the targeting, route selection, weaponeering and sensor prioritisation processes. Among the main outputs are predictions of thermal cross-over, moments of optimal engageability and optimal flight paths and altitudes for force protection. In the presentation, the chain of modeling elements required for the predictions will be introduced, and the critical aspects and complexity of modeling will be highlighted.
