Infrared Projection Systems for Wide Field of View Sensor Testing
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
This document presents Optical Sciences Corporation''''''''s Phase I SBIR proposal for the design and fabrication of an infrared projection system for wide field of view (WFOV) sensor testing in a cryo-vacuum environment. The WFOV projector system is designed to generate complex dynamic scenes overlaid with precision unresolved point-source targets. The projected scenes are capable of simulating large temperature ranges with high spatial resolution over a wide FOV using a very broadband optical system. BENEFITS: The advanced WFOV cryo-vacuum compatible projector system developed under this effort will be used in government and contractor electro-optic test facilities for the simulation and testing of advanced space-based IR sensors. Other commercial spin-off applications include testing of WFOV imaging IR sensors used in the homeland security, medical imaging, police surveillance, fire fighting, and collision avoidance systems.
