Research Institution

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop a COMbined BAckground multi-band Target-Scene Projector (COMBAT-SP) to address the Navy’s need to simulate countermeasure performance through hardware in the loop (HWIL) testing. The key innovation of the proposed approach is the use of modified Digital Micromirror Devices to create flickerless target sources with high apparent temperature (1000K) and controllable multi-spectral infrared signatures.  The COMBAT-SP system includes an imbedded, opaque primary target aperture in a wide field simulated sky background, and an ultraviolet/visible and infrared split band beam combining and steering concept. The split band beam combination allows for steering of a translucent secondary target against the fixed primary target and sky background. Under the Phase I effort, PSI plans to develop a system level model and breadboard key system components. This program will culminate with the generation of COMBAT-SP prototype conceptual design to be integrated with the Navy’s Infrared Target Generation (IRTG) table under the Phase II effort.
