Research Institution
This document presents Optical Sciences Corporation's proposal for the design of a high dynamic range advanced infrared projector for Hardware-in-the-Loop simulations. The advanced IR projector is designed to generate dynamic scenes with high spatialresolution, high intensity, and large temperature ranges. The projector will be capable of generating complex IR target and backgound signatures necessary for simulating missile defense scenarios from acquisition to terminal homing. The projector is alsodesigned 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 testing of advanced IR missileseekers. 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 applications include testing ofimaging IR sensors used in the medical imaging, police surveillance, fire fighting, and collision avoidance systems.
