Abstract
This paper presents qualitative and quantitative comparisons between emissive and reflective target technologies used in the application of IR target projection for thermal imager test and evaluation. Comparison of target projector performance in MRTD, SiTF, MTF, and other test areas will be presented. Relative advantages and disadvantages of emissive and reflective systems will be shown, in addition to requirements placed upon test laboratory environment by the different projector technologies. Discussion of software-based compensation techniques for mitigating reflected ambient effects, environmental ambient drift, and other anomalies will also be provided.
