Research Institution
The capability to optically project virtual LADAR scenes would maximize the effectiveness of Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) simulation in the design, development, and testing of LADAR seekers. The goal of this research is to develop a LADAR scene projectorto meet the demands of closed-loop weapon testing in a Multi-mode HWIL simulation environment. During the Phase I effort, a preliminary design of the LADAR scene projector will be produced, which can realistically simulate the optical return signals of aLADAR seeker and whose operation is compatible with a flight motion simulator. Presented in this document is the technical approach that will be undertaken. This discussion includes the various tasks to be conducted along with the technologies to beconsidered to meet the stated goal. The results of the Phase I research will lead directly to the development of a LADAR scene projection system during the Phase II.The conceptual design resulting from this effort will be the basis for the development ofa LADAR Scene Projector, which would enhance the use of Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation in the design, development, and testing of LADAR seekers
