Abstract:

The Balanced Technology Initiative on Smart Weapons Operability BTIOSWOE has a goal to develop a computer simulation capability of the radiant field from the natural environment. This simulation capability would then be used by designers and testers of smart weapons electro-optic sensor systems to study the performance of the systems under anticipated environmental conditions. Vegetation offers a particular challenge to the BTISWOE modeling community due to the wide variety in types, shapes, sizes, and distributions of vegetation. To aid in the development of energy budget models of surfaces containing vegetation, a measurement program was designed and conducted near Howland, Maine. The SWOE Thermal Analysis and Measurement Program STAMP was designed with the goal of providing data support models for a 3-D thermal model of an individual tree and an interim model of the thermal response at a forest edge.
