Simulations of the performance of multi-spectral sensors or multiple sensors with data fusion require phenomenological consistency in the target and background signatures presented to the sensors. This paper describes the incorporation of ultraviolet signatures of targets and backgrounds into an engagement simulation framework. This paper emphasizes ultraviolet phenomenology and the signatures of aircraft compared to fires, lights, industrial sources and other high energy sources. In particular, variation of the sources as a function of time, wavelength and aspect angle is discussed, as these variations may be critical to the discrimination of targets from natural and man-made background sources. The organization of multiple data sets representing the same object in different spectral regions is also described for use in simulations.
