Abstract:

Intelligence data is a key component to command and control C2 decisions. Often intelligence analysts have to provide commanders with timely data in order for them to execute their missions. The Advanced Infrared Countermeasures Assessment Model AIRSAM is a tool used by analysts at the National Air Intelligence Center NAIC to predict the most likely infrared countermeasure IRCM response from aircraft when engaged by a threat using electro-optic EO and infrared IR weaponry. The Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL develops this tool for NAIC. The goal of this tool is to allow the analyst to perform multiple engagement scenarios involving different geometries and IRCM responses in a relatively short period of time e.g. one day.
