This paper describes the unique challenges presented when using computer generated infrared imagery in a real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation. IR target signature and background scene validation methods are discussed. The time delay introduced into the system when using a computer-generated image in a real-time closed loop simulation is discussed along with an analysis of the effect of the time delay on the hardware. Specific examples of the image and system analysis will be presented along with a visual comparison of 'live' and simulated IR sensor scenes.
