Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement (SWOE) is a coordinated, cooperative Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force effort to integrate and validate a targets in backgrounds scene generation process. The SWOE Process has been developed to generate realistic multi- spectral, including IR and MMW, scenes representative of the greatest possible range of world wide battlefield scenarios. This Process is based on fundamental physics formulations which produce accurate temporal and spatial distributions of the energy fields reaching any given weapon sensor aperture. There are six areas of specific focus: (1) codification of methods to make measurements in support of synthetic generation of battlefield scenes, (2) automation of information bases construction for a world wide range of battlefields, (3) multi-spectral scene physics modeling for a world wide range of battlefield scenarios, (4) synthetic battlefield background environment and target rendering, (5) integration of synthetic battlefield scene generation capabilities onto common computer workstations, and (6) integration of the SWOE Process into an architecture that is compatible for use with state-of-the-art distributed networks.
