Abstract
The design of the collimator for dynamic infrared (IR) scene simulation based on the digital micro-mirror devices (DMD) is present in this paper. The collimator adopts a reimaging configuration to limit in physical size availability and cost. The aspheric lens is used in the relay optics to improve the image quality and simplify the optics configuration. The total internal reflection (TIR) prisms is located between the last surface of the optics and the DMD to fold the raypaths of the IR light source. The optics collimates the output from 1024×768 element DMD in the 8~10.3μm waveband and enables an imaging system to be tested out of 8° Field Of View (FOV). The long pupil distance of 800mm ensures the remote location seekers under the test.
