Abstract : The presence of cloud may delay electro-optical sensor boost plume detection and tracking until the target is above the cloud layers. This paper evaluates a technique hat could eliminate or significantly reduce such time delays and assesses potential impacts on BPI CONOPS, BMC41 and weapon system performance, trade and optimization considerations.
