Abstract : The mission of NPSI is to provide maximum database reuse across Type/Model/Series platforms to lower the life cycle cost of out-the-window visual terrain, 3-D models, and sensor databases, along with dataset archive capability, and short-notice distribution services. To better facilitate sensor simulation interoperability, the NPSI Material Properties Reference Database (MPRD) was established as a component of the NPSI metadata architecture to provide a common set of material properties and a common mechanism for referencing and enumeration. This document is intended to serve as a reference for users of NPSI datasets containing MPRD attribution.
