Abstract : Results are presented of a study to define an optics module for ROSCOE, comprising a Radar and Optical Systems Code for nuclear effects. The model is general enough to represent many types of optical sensors, such as air-, rocket-, and satellite-borne platforms. External factors such as target observables, optical path transmittance, stellar backgrounds, and earth limb radiance are considered in addition to nuclear effects. Systems models for optical sensor detection, tracking, and signal processing are described. (Author)
