An infrared-guided missile has been emerging as a major threat against combat aircraft due to its passive guidance characteristics and with recent advances in stealth technology. Hence, the infrared stealth technology and its effectiveness-evaluation technique become more significant than ever before. In this study, we applied missile aerodynamics to lethal range calculation which allowed more precise prediction. CFD analyses were newly involved in estimating drag force characteristics of an infrared-guided missile. Velocity profiles during flight period of the missile were constructed utilizing these drag characteristics and then incorporated into our in-house code to predict corresponding lethal ranges. The results showed that the present method can predict lethal range more appropriately than the previous one with constant velocity profile. As one of the results, if a fighter gains altitude more which reduces less drag of the attacking missile, then the lethal envelope increases significantly more compared to the lock-on envelope.
Key Words: IR Stealth, Infrared Guided Weapon, Aircraft Susceptibility, Lethal Range
