Total Infrared Simulation
ThermoAnalytics provides comprehensive infrared analysis of full vehicle systems operating in realistic environments. Our engineers support you with planning the simulation, collecting boundary conditions and system parameters, and choosing the best available technologies deliver a comprehensive simulation of your vehicle.
Starting with your CAD geometry, we build a fully representative infrared model. With a complete model arranged, the vehicle can be exercised to provide engineering data in detailed reports.
Boundary Conditions and Loading
Unlike most simulations, which include many simplifications in representing the environment, our team employs a highly integrated approach that captures effects both internal and external to the vehicle. The purpose in choosing this robust approach is often to understand the relationships across the system as a whole. To demonstrate these indirect relationships, we often employ CFD analysis for convection, and apply it to our models. Additional modules, such as human comfort, can be utilized to test design changes early in the development cycle.
Ground Truth and Validation
Our team can support the ground truth for simulation inputs by testing paints, surface conditions and materials to ensure accurate boundary conditions used as inputs. We can furthermore validate full vehicle models operating in the field or using surrogate systems to represent preproduction vehicles. From simulation planning to final validation and verification, ThermoAnalytics delivers total infrared solutions. Contact us to schedule an engineering review of your project.
Complete Results and Reports
With all relevant infrared sources represented, our full vehicle simulations can be carried out for any global position and any weather condition. HVAC systems can be simulated, modified, and improved while operating under realistic transient conditions. Transient solar loading to the vehicle, including transmission through glass and effects of cloud cover are fully accounted for with accurate solar angles for the assigned location. Wind and radiation losses to the environment and are computed across the vehicle envelope to provide the most advanced simulation available. Whether your goal is design improvements, target recognition, or human comfort, our team can properly configure your system and deliver both an operational model and a concise engineering report.
Learn More about Infrared Analysis & Simulation Services
ThermoAnalytics has provided all of the branches of the United States military with advanced IR signature targets for analyzing camouflage, concealment, and deception. Our engineers can also account for plumes and plume impingement by combining MuSES with CFD Software results.
ThermoAnalytics simulates and tests concept vehicles for infrared signature analysis. US Army TACOM uses MuSES to find the detection range of IR signature targets. The Army TARDEC and AMRDEC research teams also rely on ThermoAnalytics software for IR signature analysis.
If you have a problem that's not captured by our software "out of the box," ask ThermoAnalytics to develop a custom script and user routine for you. For example, a system with custom PID temperature controls can be quickly and easily built into a user routine with outputs to control heaters and cooling loops.
Using MuSES' Hyperspectral Rendering Module, our team can develop plume simulation for aircraft, ground vehicles, and naval vessels while providing the most comprehensive infrared rendering available.
ThermoAnalytics is a global leader in infrared signature management and the engineering processes that lead to a minimized IR contrast. Efficient engineering processes are key to short product development cycles and total product quality.
Our MuSES Software is the undisputed leader in target radiance predictions. We have also developed proprietary methods of modeling phenomena that affect a sensor's output. Using ThermoAnalytics software, you can model sensor response, sensor noise, atmospheric path attenuation, and atmospheric scattering.
Infrared signature management services from ThermoAnalytics involves the comprehensive planning, testing and simulation of IR contrast for targets operating under a range of environmental conditions.
Our team can model your targets for vulnerability or threat analysis, yielding contrast metrics and BRDF rendered images. ThermoAnalytics leads the industry in modeling LO technologies—not just for post-design system evaulation, but for system design from the conceptual level up.
