Abstract : The Balanced Technology Initiative (BTI) on Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement (SWOE) has as a goal to model the radiant field from complex natural backgrounds. During the three years of the program, the calculation of these radiant fields has evolved to produce a process, known as the SWOE Process, that will enable a smart weapons designer or tester to specify and obtain the data required to describe the physical characteristics and the environmental conditions of a scene, model the physical processes controlling the generation of the radiant field, and display and analyze the results of the simulated scene. In this, the last year of the BTI/SWOE program, the emphasis was on the delivery of a package of models on a computer platform for use in performing scene simulations for smart weapons design and testing applications. The efforts reported on here consisted of making enhancements to the SWOE thermal models and the design of a new Command Interface System and User Interface System.
