Projector of True Spectrum Dynamic IR Scenes (PTS-DIRS)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Aerius Photonics has partnered with Raytheon Missile Systems to jointly develop a true-spectral (or hyper-spectral) projector system concept that will achieve, for the first time, the ability to project both apparent temperature and apparent emissivity over a broad temperature range and for a large format projector. The projector will project complex and dynamic targets with pixel level control of the object apparent temperature and emissivity. The projector will simultaneously be able to project the true-spectrum of high apparent temperature targets such as rocket plumes and other complex hyper-spectral target and hot-gas emission phenomena. Such a projector is based on a new approach and concept in advanced scene projector technology enabled by new advancements in steerable Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) technologies. In its ultimate format, the scalable technology will be able to achieve 512x512 and 1024x1024 projection formats with <1ms pixel response times, 3000K+ apparent temperature projection, and true-spectral and emissivity control for the development and test of sophisticated multi-band and hyper-spectral sensors.
