Technology Service Corporation (TSC) improved the image generator portion of an IR scene simulator that is used for dynamic, real-time, hardware-in-the-loop testing of an IR sensor system. This paper describes the IR simulator prior to its improvement, the goals that were set for the image generator upgrade, and the resultant improved IR simulator, including its new features (e.g., antialiasing, smooth shading, and texture). The steps involved in computing an IR scene are also discussed, as are the software models used to generate the IR scene and an alternative test equipment configuration that was devised for the simulator.
