European Computer Model for Optronic System Performance Prediction (ECOMOS)

ECOMOS is a multinational effort within the framework of a European Defence Agency (EDA) Project Arrangement. Its aim is to provide a generally accepted and harmonized European computer model for computing nominal Target Acquisition (TA) ranges of optronic imagers operating in the Visible or thermal Infrared (IR). The project involves close co-operation of defence and security industry and public research institutes from France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Sweden.

ECOMOS uses and combines well-accepted existing European tools to build up a strong competitive position. This includes two TA models: the analytical TRM4 model and the image-based TOD model, and the atmosphere model MATISSE.
