Abstract:

The ROSCOE computer code is designed specifically to be the laboratory standard for evaluating nuclear effects on radar and optical sensors. The program provides a means for 1 evaluating radar acquisition, discrimination, and tracking performance in a nuclear environment, 2 determining optical SWIR surveillance and tracking performance in the presence of nuclear effects, 3 measuring the degradation of microwave satellite communications systems due to transmission through nuclear disturbed regions, 4 estimating various radar and optical propagation error sources, and 5 computing specific phenomenological data. The ROSCOE documentation consists of a number of volumes including user manuals Volumes 1-3, systems code descriptions Volumes 4, 20, and 21-1, code validation documents Volumes 6 and 23, and phenomenology code descriptions all others.
