Abstract
Active imaging systems are currently being developed to increase the target acquisition and identification range performance of electro-optical systems. This paper reports on current efforts to extend the Night Vision Integrated Performance Model (NV-IPM) to include laser radar (LADAR) systems for unresolved targets. Combining this new LADAR modeling capability with existing sensor and environment capabilities already present in NV-IPM will enable modeling and trade studies for military relevant systems.
