Abstract
This paper describes the recent addition, characterization, and integration of emerging technologies for dynamic infrared scene projection at the US Army Aviation and Missile Command's (AMCOM) Advanced Simulation Center (ASC). Infrared scene projection performs a vital role in the daily testing of tactical and theatre missile systems within these Hardware-in- the-Loop (HWIL) laboratories. Topics covered within this paper include the addition and characterization of new Honeywell and Santa Barbara infrared emitter arrays, a five-axis flight motion table test configuration, unique calibration/NUC schemes, added software support, verification/validation results, and supplemental projection systems. A new dynamic IR scene projector technology based upon the Digital Micromirror DeviceTM is also presented in the paper, as well as example imagery from several of the projector systems.
