Research Institution
This document presents Optical Sciences Corporation''s Phase II SBIR proposal for the design and fabrication of a high dynamic range advanced infrared scene projector for Hardware-in-the-loop simulations. The advanced IR projector is designed to generatedynamic scenes with high spatial resolution, high intensity, and large temperature ranges. The projector will be capable of generating complex IR target and background signatures for simulating missile defense scenarios from acquisition to terminal homing.Ther projector is also designed to be compact and light weight to support operation on a flight motion simulator. The advanced IR projector developed under this effort will be used in government and contractor HWIL facilities for the simulation and testingof advanced IR missile seekers. The technology developed under this effort may also be used in production line and depot level testing of fielded weapon systems, resulting in improved reliability and reduced operating costs. Other commercial applicationsinclude testing of imaging IR sensors used in the medical imaging, police surveillance, homeland security, fire fighting, and collision avoidance systems.
