Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SILICON RESISTOR ARRAY TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN PROPOSED TO FABRICATE AN IR (INFRARED) AIR TARGET SIMULATOR SPECIFICALLY FOR SIMULATING, TESTING AND MODELING OF SEEKER-TO-TARGET RANGE CLOSURE CONDITIONS. EACH RESISTOR HEATED BY A PASSAGE OF CURRENT ACTS AS A BLACKBODY RADIATOR, AND THIS CURRENT IS INDIVIDUALLY CONTROLLED BY A MOS (METAL-OXIDE-SEMICONDUCTOR) CIRCUIT (ONE OF EACH RESISTOR). THE WHOLE ARRAY MAY BE PROGRAMMED TO PROVIDE A SINGLE IR TARGET OR A CONTINUOUS CHANGING EXTENDED TARGET TO SIMULATE THE HOMING EFFECT OF A SEEKER SENSOR ONTO THE TARGET. THE PROPOSED EFFORT IN PHASE I OF A THREE PHASE PROGRAM, WITH PHASE I TASKED TO DESIGN A TEST MOS-RESISTOR ARRAY AIMED AT DEMONSTRATIG THE CRITICAL ELEMENTS OF MOS-RESISTOR FORMATION AND FLICKER CONTROL. A PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF AN OPTICAL SYSTEM TO SIMULATE SEEKER-TO-TARGET CLOSURE IS ALSO MADE IN PHASE I.
