Abstract : This report documents the accomplishments obtained by Mission Research Corporation on the Analysis of Radiation Effects on Sensors (ARES) program. The period of performance of the referenced contract was from July 1, 1989 through July 24, 1992. The ARES program is part of the U.S. Army Strategic Defense Command's (USASDC) on-going program to develop the technologies needed to field infrared (IR) sensor systems capable of meeting the requirements of current and future ballistic defense missions. The mission requirements include the range of threat environments expected under the current Global Protection Against Limited Strikes (GPALS) scenario.
