Abstract
TACSI (TACtical SImulation) is an existing simulator used as a tactical environment for manned simulators at Saab Aerosystems. TACSI can also be used as a stand-alone desktop development and simulation tool. TACSI simulates a large number of entities and functions such as platforms, sensors, weapons, signatures, communication, multisensor fusion, decision support etc. TACSI has a rule based pilot model and uses High Level Architecture (HLA) for interfacing with other simulation models. This model, a development of TACSI, simulates the flight dynamics, IR-signature and IR-seeker operation. The dynamic behaviour of the aircraft, the IRCM, the missile and the IR-seeker are modelled. The IR-contrast seen by the seeker through the atmosphere in front of the aircraft and the IRCM are spectrally and dynamically modelled. The seeker operation behaviour and function are also modelled. To implement this in a real-time simulation system simplifications are necessary. This paper describes the simplifications to model the IR-contrast and the seeker function. This model is used to analyse the effect of IR countermeasures (IRCM) on a missile IR-seeker.
