Not Available Man/hardware-in-the-loop laboratory simulation is the most cost-effective methodology for maturing advanced sensor technologies because the battlefield can be brought to the laboratory through multi-spectral synthetic battlespace simulation. Current laboratory simulation technologies cannot generate the real-time high fidelity multi-spectral environment required to advance multi-spectral sensor technology development. The limitation is the real-time generation of the high fidelity IR/EO part of the multi-spectral environment for IR/EO missile warning sensor development. DRA proposes to solve this challenging technology limitation by applying commercial scene rendering processing concepts to the problem with an innovative architecture that will provide a flexible IR/EO missile warning sensor development requirements, define key simulation technologies required for generation a real-time high fidelity IR/EO scene and develop a simulation architecture that integrates these key technologies. DRA will utilize the real-time simulation capability in the Sensors Directorate Integrated demonstrations and Applications Laboratory (IDAL) to demonstrate the architecture's feasibility. During Phase II.. DRA will implement a prototype capability into the IDAL and demonstrate key performance characteristics. The Phase II effort will provide a building block capability for rapid evolution of advanced IR/EO missile warning sensor technology.
