This paper details a Hardware-in-the-Loop Facility (HIL) developed for evaluation and verification of a missile system with dual mode capability. The missile has the capability of tracking and intercepting a target using either an RF antenna or an IR sensor. The testing of a dual mode system presents a significant challenge in the development of the HIL facility. An IR and RF target environment must be presented simultaneously to the missile under test. These targets, simulated by IR and RF sources, must be presented to the missile under test without interference from each other. The location of each source is critical in the development of the HIL facility. The requirements for building a HIL facility with dual mode capability and the methodology for testing the dual mode system are defined within this paper. Methods for the verification and validation of the facility are discussed.
