Abstract:

This four volume final report for the development of a Combined Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and SIGINT Model CRESS contains a detailed description of the model, explicit instructions for using it, formats for the data, extensive lists of object and background characteristics, representative lists of sensor characteristics, and FORTRAN-IV listings of the computer programs. The description includes models for photographic, IR, radar, visual, TV, PNVD, laser, and SIGINT sensors. These sensor models provide the core for the three major models aerial, ground, and SIGINT that constitute CRESS. Methods of providing for the effects of navigation error, aircraft attrition caused by enemy ground AA weapons, attrition of ground observation posts, equipment failure, terrain masking, cloud coverage, vegetation coverage, camouflage, misrecognition and misidentification of target elements, false targets, multisensor interpretation, various report criteria, delay times for reports, and time ordering of reports and of grouping elements into possible area targets are also described. Instructions for the collecting, collating, and processing of the data necessary for running the computer programs are included, as are instructions for analyzing the computer output.
