The scene generation test capability (SGTC) has achieved an initial operating capability (IOC) at the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) using direct write scene generation (DWSG). This test tool will be able to present realistic mission scenarios directly to sensor focal plane arrays (FPAs) for developmental and operational test and evaluation (DT&E and OT&E), and will be integrated with the full-up sensor test capabilities at AEDC. The concept validation phase of this program is an operational system that is currently involved in sensor testing. The final phase provides scene projection at three infrared wavelengths and one visible wavelength. The facility is ready for FPA testing. This paper presents an overview of the current SGTC program, including a report of the hardware testing performed as part of the validation process.
