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 Advanced Simulation Center. Infrared scene projection performs a vital role in the daily testing of tactical and theater missile systems within these Hardware- in-the-Loop (HWIL) laboratories. Topics covered within this paper include the addition and characterizations of new Honeywell and Santa Barbara Infrared emitter arrays, the integration and operation of the Honeywell and SBIR emitter array systems into a HWIL test, the development of high speed reduced-size IRSP drive electronics, the development of a NUC/characterization station, added software support, and the status of DMD-based infrared scene projector. Example imagery and test results from several of the projector systems are included within this paper.
