Abstract
This paper describes the current research in integrating Personal Computer technology into the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) facilities. Using both COTS hardware along with custom built interfaces; the system under development will be used to replace high-end graphics workstations that provide infrared image generation. Infrared scene generation is an integral component in the HWIL testing of missile seeker units. This functionality must be more accessible, portable, and affordable as HWIL testing becomes more integral and more widely distributed in the development life cycle of missile systems. The graphics system under development is designed to be a more feasible plug-in replacement for existing infrared scene generation systems. Real-time performance and support of existing interfaces to simulation computers, projectors, and missile components are the primary considerations in designing this system.
