Abstract
The operation of the Direct Write Scene Generator (DWSG) at the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) to drive a fiber array projection system is reported. The fiber array absorbs the input radiation from the laser-based system and produces broadband infrared output through blackbody cavities fabricated on the ends of the optical fibers. A test program was accomplished to quantify the performance of the fiber array with respect to input laser power and optical pulse width. Static and dynamic scenes were also projected with the device and recorded with an IR camera system. This paper presents the results of this work.
