Abstract:

The primary purpose of the Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement SWOE Joint Test and Evaluation Program is to validate the SWOE scene generation process. Once validated, this process will reduce, if not eliminate, the design-test-redesign approach to smart weapon development. Using the SWOE process, smart weapons designers will he able to test their sensor algorithms on simulated scenes with a greater degree of variability than is often presented during the test phase of the design process. The SWOE process will also allow for the smart weapons designs to he tested against different environments without the need for expensive and time-consuming data collection exercises. ibis report describes the site of the Yuma 1 data collection exercise, the data collection plans and techniques used, and the data collected. The data collection period covered 47 days from meteorological, thermal, infrared, and other environmental data collected by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Vicksburg, MS.
