Physical Sciences Inc. will leverage its extensive experience in infrared scene projector (IRSP) design and harsh environmental operability to create a radiation hardened, hybrid, foveated, infrared scene projector (Rad Hard HF-IRSP). Demonstration of the environmental hardened design will be accomplished by placing the HF-IRSP, or components thereof, inside a radiation shielded, thermally controlled pressure vessel which is exposed to multi-component ionizing radiation. This design allows long-life, low-maintenance operation of conventional optical components inside a pressure, thermal and radiation environment similar to that of low Earth orbit. A modular reconfiguration of the HF-IRSP is planned, creating the potential for a suite of radiation-hardened IRSP components that can be configured for the diverse needs of the infrared sensor test and evaluation community. The Phase I effort focuses on demonstration of the ability to integrate PSI’s HF-IRSP technology with a radiation-proof container capable of operating in a low temperature, vacuum environment.
