Abstract
The performance of many infrared seekers and sensor systems operating in the far infrared spectral region of 8 to 12 microns is critically dependent on the magnitude of thermal signatures (i.e., thermal contrasts, or, equivalently, differences in thermal radiance values between various scene components). This paper describes the Thermodynamic Armored Vehicle and Environment Thermal Signatures (TAVETS) Model for estimating the day-to-day diurnal variations in thermal radiance and signatures for armored vehicles and selected scene components. Because precipitation effects were not present in the selected field test data analyzed, the modeling accuracies reported in this paper are valid only for moderately good weather.
