Abstract
Real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation of a spaced based kinetic kill vehicle (KV) is described. Simulation models are executed in real-time on an EAI SIMSTAR computer. Models include high fidelity KV kinematics and dynamics, thruster actuators, mass properties, and a high velocity exoatmospheric target. A Carco Flight Motion Simulator is used to exercise the test hardware inertial measurement unit and IR sensor. A Lockheed Martin PT-2000 Computer Image GEnerator is used to produce target and background imagery to the sensor. IR scene projection is produced by an Aura Systems Infrared Scene Projector. Hardware interfacing is facilitated via the use of VME based systems.
