Abstract : Requirements for missile guidance and stealth properties are changing and becoming more stringent. There is no up-to-date synthesis relating rocket motor plume properties to these new requirements. The work performed and recently finished within PEP WG 21 has formed the basis for this Lecture Series. The scope of the Lecture Series will be rocket motor exhaust products and plumes in all their aspects. Plume properties will be addressed and methods of numerical simulation and experimental assessment described. Specifically, plume structure, after-burning phenomena, primary and secondary smoke, plume radiation signatures and plume microwave interactions will be described in detail. Operational aspects linked to these topics will discuss how rocket plumes influence missile detection, guidance and tracking. Ways in which plumes may be modified to reduce or eliminate this influence will be suggested.
