Expendable Countermeasure Effectiveness against Imaging Infrared Guided Threats

  title={Expendable Countermeasure Effectiveness against Imaging Infrared Guided Threats},
  author={C. Viau},
The following investigation evaluated the effectiveness of expendable infrared countermeasures (flares) in the protection of a fast jet against imaging infrared seekers. The report presents an effectiveness evaluation process and analyzes the results of Monte Carlo simulation runs. The goal of the investigation was to determine if expendable countermeasures (specifically spatially distributed flares) could be effective against imaging IR-guided threats. 
The flare effectiveness against imaging infrared seekers
The effectiveness of MTV flares, which are used to protect air platforms against this type of threats, is evaluated by a simulation software, which includes G/M model with IIR seeker, MTV flare model and F 16 air platform model. Expand
