Research Institution

Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) will develop an Ultra High Apparent Temperature Large Format Infrared Scene Projector (UHAT-LF-IRSP) employing digital micromirror device (DMD) technology with structured quantum cascade laser (QCL) illumination, addressing requirements for next generation scene projector capabilities to keep pace with evolving threats and associated threat detection sensors. Of primary importance is the ability to simulate extremely bright objects with commensurate dynamic range. Of additional importance is large format required for wide field of view (FOV) threat detection systems. Under the Phase II effort, a prototype UHAT-LF-IRSP will be built and validated against key performance parameters at PSI using a surrogate unit under test. The IRSP will then be made available for evaluation. Approved for Public Release | 22-MDA-11340 (16 Dec 22)
