Abstract
Cyan Systems has teamed with Nova Sensors and Sandia National Laboratory to develop a novel Multispectral Emitter System capable of projecting effective temperatures greater than 3000K with high spectral and radiometric accuracy. The XTEMPS is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical breakthrough required in the successful development of high fidelity Multi-band IR Scene Projection systems. Cyan Systems has formed a team of experts in Electro-Optics and material science for the novel development of the XTEMPS. Our strategy is to address the limitations that exist in current Scene Projection Technologies, namely low effective temperatures, pixel reliability, poor spectral control, slow slew rates, and non-uniformity. By developing a new class of spectrally tunable emitters and drive electronics, wide dynamic range scenes can be simulated with excellent linearity and uniformity in the projected image. Our goals for temperature emission of photonic crystals are to approach 6,000 Kelvin effect projected temperatures. Dramatic improvement in spectral, temporal and spatial resolution to 512 x 512 and greater are also key technology improvement goals we hope to obtain for the XTEMPS.
