As the platform for surface-source infrared decoys, the target aircraft is the aim of attacks in air-to-air combat. It can quickly and accurately evaluate the jamming effectiveness of the surface-source IR decoy in various states of motion is important for enhancing the security of the aircraft. This paper proposes a model of surface-source IR decoy, and compares and analyzes simulated and measured infrared images of diffusion. A system to assess the effectiveness of the jamming of the surface-source IR decoy, target aircraft, and infrared guided missile called “Trinity” is established. Simulations were conducted to assess the impact of flight height, flight speed, and the maneuvering of the target aircraft on the jamming effectiveness of the surface-source IR decoy. The results show that with an increase in flight height and speed, the jamming probability of a surface-source IR decoy first increases and then decreases, where evasive maneuvering by the target aircraft can effectively improve this probability. When the radius of the vertical snake maneuver was 125 m, that of the horizontal snake maneuver was 200 m, and the radius of the barrel roll maneuver was 250 m, the jamming probability of the surface-source IR decoy was relatively high. By comparing the simulation results with measured data, the study verified the accuracy of the proposed method.
