Multi-Spectral Scene Generator Upgrade
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Abstract: Radiance Technologies will develop a Multi-Spectrum Scene Generator (MSSG) to support the testing requirements of current sensing technologies under development by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). This MSSG will minimize the real-time computational requirements and reduce the nodal data transfer by utilizing a novel system architecture. The MSSG will interface with projection systems such as the Reconfigurable Array Scene Projector (RASP) and the Ultra High Temperature based projector (UHT), meeting the performance requirements of both projection systems and their respective sensor use cases. The first objective is to integrate the scene generation application and algorithms with a cluster of high-performance CPUs/GPUs in order to provide a MSSG system capable of interfacing with high speed projection systems. The second objective is to enhance the processing architecture by using novel computational approaches to meet anticipated spatial and temporal fidelity of the next-generation MDA sensing technologies. The third objective is the development and verification of high fidelity data sets for use in strategic and tactical scenarios that accurately model intended cases for anticipated sensors. The outcome of this effort will be a Multi-Spectrum Scene Generation system capable of stimulating a 2-color IR sensor simultaneously and pixel registered with a laser illuminated system.
