The purpose of the Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement SWOE Joint Test and Evaluation Program is to validate the SWOE synthetic scene generation procedure. Once validated, this procedure will hopefully change the design-test-redesign approach to smart weapons development, test, and evaluation. Using the SWOE process, smart weapons designers will be able to evaluate 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 weapon designs to be evaluated for different environments without the need for expensive and time-consuming data collection exercises. This report is an analysis of thermal data collected by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station during the Grayling 1 field program 15 September-30 October 1992 to help understand variations in image characteristics using image metrics and to present data in a format that could be used for synthetic image validation tasks. The report also describes in graphical format the meteorological and terrain data at the time the infrared imagery data were collected and correlates measured data with meteorological and terrain data.
