Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
New technologies are required to support MDA requirements in the area of high performance UV/VIS/NIR scene projectors for laboratory closed-loop testing of sensors and their associated control and image processing systems. Plasma display technology, currently popular for commercial television, has the potential to meet all the projection requirements such as high brightness (6000 K apparent temperature) non-modulated addressing methods, simultaneous "snapshot" pixel update, scene dynamic range of 14 bits, dynamic response of less than 1 millisecond, pixel non-uniformity of less than 1%, and scene formats of 1024x1024 or greater. Plasma operating conditions, gases, phosphors, cell geometry and excitation conditions will be investigated and modeled in order to design a pixilated micro-discharge display that meets all the DoD UV/VIS/NIR scene projector requirements.
