The model was developed to incorporate the major strengths of the existing deterministic and stochastic models: ability to account directly for target stricture and motion, and ease of obtaining target-signature time series, respectively. The deterministic models, though precise, are extremely inefficient in generating these time series and require a great deal of information about target structure and motion. The stochastic models do not directly account for target structure and motion and rely heavily upon target measurements. The model presented here efficiently generates target-signature time series given information about target structure and motion. The existing deterministic and stochastic models can be viewed as limiting cases of this new model.
