Not Available The objective of this SBIR effort is develop a LADAR Scene Projector to meet the demands of closed-loop weapon testing in a Hardware-In-The-Loop simulation environment. The goal of the Phase I research is to develop a conceptual design of the LADAR Scene Projector, which, at a minimum, can accurately simulate the optical return signals of a LADAR seeker and deliver the optical signals directly to the detectors of the sensor. In addition, this research will determine if it is feasible for the projector to deliver the optical signals at the precise angular position of the seeker's optical receiver, which is determined by the seeker gimbal position and the attitude position synthesized by a flight motion simulator. The proposal details the various tasks to be done along with the technical approaches to be considered to meet the stated goal. The results of the Phase I research will lead directly to the development of a LADAR scene projection system during Phase II.
