Abstract

This Phase II proposal is to develop and deliver an advanced capability mid-wave infrared (MWIR) scene projector (SP) able to simulate the parameters necessary to adequately test sensors/subsystems for hypersonic engagement scenarios. The MWIR SP product at TRL>6 will be developed in coordination with the sponsor’s goals and delivered to the sponsor’s chosen facility at the end of Phase II. The MWIR SP system requirements and critical functioning have been confirmed during Phase 1 tests to meet, or exceed, threshold specifications. Furthermore, the modular design could be combined with future shortwave infrared (SWIR) and eventually long-wave infrared (LWIR) to become a multispectral (MS) SP system. Approved for Public Release | 22-MDA-11340 (16 Dec 22)
