This paper discusses several practical considerations regarding the fidelity validation of synthetically generated and displayed infrared scenery used for smart hardware-in-the-loop (SHWIL) and man-in-the-loop simulations. Ongoing work of this type at an Orlando based aerospace company has raised technical issues which may contribute to the broader DIS "fidelity validation" program. Issues concerning the documentation of existing FLIR imagery, and their utility for fidelity comparisons to synthetic imagery are discussed. Outlined is a generic, necessarily incomplete (or open ended) scheme for IR image validation, with respect to both human and smart machine participants. Discussed are both model based, and statistically based analysis methods— with an eye on maintaining flexibility in evolving stronger fidelity validation tools over the lifetime of the project. The paper closes with recommendations on a management perspective for ongoing man-machine-in-the-loop imagery validation drawing on a dialectically motivated fact/value/practice perspective.
