Abstract : The Horizon Infrared Surveillance Sensor (HISS) Phase 2 system was involved in field testing at Wallops Island, Virginia from November 1993 through April 1994. This report discusses the HISS project and presents results from the analysis of system detection range performance. The HISS Phase 2 detection range performance has been used to demonstrate IR contributions to an integrated sensor system and to verify detection range predictions and improve the fidelity of current detection range performance models.
