Efficient military operations require insight in the capabilities of the available sensor package to reliably assess the operational theatre, as well as insight in the adversary’s capabilities to do the same. This paper presents the EOSTAR model suite, an end-to-end approach to assess the performance of electro-optical sensor systems in an operational setting. EOSTAR provides the user with coverage diagrams (“where can I see the threat?”) and synthetic sensor images (“how do I perceive the threat?”), and allows assessing similar parameters for threat sensors. The paper discusses the elements of EOSTAR and outlines a few of the possible applications of the model.
