Scene generation systems which utilize laser radiation as a source must demonstrate the equivalence of focal plane array (FPA) response to this radiation as compared to the continuous radiation of realistic in-band scene. AEDCs Direct Write Scene Generation technique has been developed to provide mission scenarios for FPA testing. In the course of this development, radiative source issues have been examined in some detail to validate the technique. The purpose of this paper is to report the results of this investigation. In particular the response of a variety of FPAs to pulsed laser radiation is discussed.
