MuSES (Multi-Service Electro-optic Signature) is the next-generation infrared signature prediction program from ThermoAnalytics. MuSES provides complete thermal modeling and IR signature prediction within an integrated easy-to-use graphical interface. With MuSES, your team can develop a comprehensive understanding of thermal signature drivers under realistic environmental conditions and locations. In addition to diffuse signature prediction, Multibounce BRDF rendering of band-specific radiance with atmospheric path attenuation gives you true apparent temperature at the sensor.
The IR Signature post processor displays physical temperatures, in-band radiances, and apparent temperatures. The user can investigate conduction heat rates, convection heat rates, and radiation heat rates using the post-processor interface. MuSES can project the temperature and radiance data onto the geometry for rapid graphical analysis. The post processor can create spatial or time plots of selected elements and facets. The user can also elect to export the results in the form of tabulated data.
New Intuitive Interface—MuSES Graphical User Interface puts you into the action. See the model's progression every step of the way. Interact with the model during the simulation and view current results displayed on the geometry in full color. No wasted time with clumsy data files.
State-of-the-Art Speed—MuSES is the industry benchmark for speed, accuracy, and flexibility. Rapid setup and signature analysis on small or large models lets you execute more runs in less time.
Accuracy—MuSES needs details—view factors, solar model, backgrounds, etc.
Flexibility—Import your surface geometry and change designs with ease. Manipulate the geometry within MuSES to improve heat management and understand IR signatures relative to a time-varying environment or operating conditions.
Faceted First Principle Backgrounds—To support accurate calculation of target/background contrast levels, MuSES fully supports faceted backgrounds. Create or import a faceted terrain. Apply one or multiple background types to your geometry. Calculate accurate temperature/signature solutions—including Full Target Background Interactions.
Integrate with CFD—Seamless integration with CFD results from FLUENT or StarCD allows increased accuracy for convection. Click here for more information on CFD.
Work on the platform of your choice—Windows, SUN, SGI, HP, or Linux. All platforms have identical user interfaces. All inputs and results are integrated into a single platform-independent file. MuSES is cross-platform compatible and supports Windows, SGI, Sun, IBM, and Linux systems.
ThermoAnalytics can also engineer custom software solutions based on the MuSES software model. Such examples are the Survivability Software, and RapidIR Software we are currently developing.
RadTherm can also be licensed to operate with add-on modules for specific purposes.
