Abstract
Agiltron, Inc proposes a dynamic color ratio window of IR simulator source array for the open-air test and evaluation of missile warning and directional infrared counter measurements. The proposed device is innovative to utilize the variable IR absorption of window approach, achieving the desired performances by effectively changing the transmission coefficients in the interest IR wavebands, such as (3.8~4.1fYm) and (4.5~4.7fYm). This windows functionalities will enrich the major performances of the current open-air test IR source systems. The proposed IR window device is in standalone, enabling the operation flexibly with the present and under developing open-air test IR sources. This device offers intrinsic advantages of color ratio change in speed, large dynamic range, capability of operation in the outdoor severe environment, and great potential of profiling multiple spectrum bands. In the Phase I program, we will demonstrate a functional prototype of dynamic IR absorption type attenuation window with fast response and continuous ratio change. This experimental result will define our innovative system design concept, leading to a fully functional system in Phase II.
