Abstract : Keweenaw Research Center (KRC) participation in the Basic Technology Initiative Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement (BTI/SWOE) Program, including contributions in the program 5 three primary developmental areas, are reported and summarized. In the area of background measurement and characterization, data and results from KRC participation in the 1990 Forest Ecosystem Dynamics - Multisensor Aircraft Campaign (FED MAC) are presented. FED MAC data and KRC Standard Scenes data were prepared for incorporation to the information data base being established by the BTI/SWOE program. The Physically Reasonable Infrared Signature Model (PRISM), developed by KRC, was made available to the BTI/SWOE modeling effort. Work with software for calculating scene statistics and metrics for infrared imagery is described. Recent developments of PRISM and of image processing software are summarized.
