Abstract : To help fill a critical gap in Assisted Target Recognition (ATR) capabilities, an empirical surface temperature model is developed with a few simple inputs, and based upon long term radiometric and meteorological measurements in several climates. It is based upon analogous climates and type days of similar weather conditions. Keywords: Empirical surface temperature model, Assisted target recognition.
