Report of the Plume Emissions Panel.

Pagination or Media Count:
The Plume Emissions Panel of the NAS Advisory Committee to the Air Force Systems Command was formed initially to investigate techniques for simulating the infrared emission from turbojet aircraft exhaust plumes. These techniques were to be applied to drone target vehicles for seeker testing, and for pilot training with infrared seeking weapons. A symposium was arranged to bring together available information related to exhaust plumes. As a result of the symposium and other discussions, it became clear that an investigation of specific radiation simulation techniques would be premature. This results from the fact that there is far too little known about the detailed radiation characteristics of the real target plume to be able to produce a satisfactory simulation at this time.
