Abstract
Special systems problems encountered in the development of hardware/man-in-the-loop simulations of missile systems are discussed. The contents of the paper are based on a US Army Missile Research and Development Command (MIRADCOM) simulation development program that resulted in a new end game simulation capability for systems employing imaging sensors and a variety of optical trackers. Emphasis is placed on the integration of optical systems which are designed to operate in the real world into a laboratory environment. The requirement to simulate the entire missile flight profile from launch to intercept posed unique problems to the optical system, especially in the end game where depth-of-field becomes critical with the small closure distances necessary to represent reasonably small missile/target separations. The solution to this problem involved the development of special optical and mechanical equipment that was integrated with the sensor and tracker elements.
