Raid environments present several challenges, including the presence of multiple objects, impact flashes and other intercepting missiles within the FPA (Focal Plane Array) of the intercepting missile. Missile seekers are responsible for maintaining a line of sight to a target that will result in an impact with the target. An unexpected thermal event such as a companion missile launch or the destruction of a nearby target can overload the seeker’s sensor. At a minimum, the seeker will temporarily lose sight of the target, and at worst the seeker may not be able to reacquire the target or reach the intended impact point. In a raid situation, the density of targets makes these flash events more likely. After launch, only onboard processing can circumvent flash problems. To address these issues, AI and its collaborator, Raytheon, will conduct research to create algorithms that mitigate the adverse effects of flash events, by adjusting sensor parameters and processing the resulting image to minimize the effects of the re-adjusted sensor parameters. A number of techniques will be used to locate the exact position of the flash, move it off the focal plane if possible, and repair the effects of the flash and sensor parameter changes. A key feature of this approach is that the onboard flash compensation can be inserted into the path of an existing track loop of any image-based seeker.
