Radiometrically accurate simulation of InfraRed (IR) signatures is an essential prerequisite for valid IR sensor testing within the IR Scene Projection (IRSP) community. The Electronic Combat Stimulation (ECSTIM) Branch EO/IR Laboratory at the NAVAIR Air Combat Environment T&E Facility (ACETEF), NAWC-AD, Patuxent River, Maryland has recently begun validation testing of their Large Format Resistive-emitter Array (LFRA) IRSP. This is in preparation for developmental and operational testing of emerging mission-critical IR Countermeasure (IRCM) systems. Validation is guided by the Navy Air Defense Threat Simulator Validation Procedures Manual (NAWCWPNS TM 7489-3) and will support s other emerging high priority development programs such as the Joint Distributed IRCM Ground-test System (JDIGS). This paper discusses the ECSTIM/EO/IR Laboratory LFRA IRSP validation testing process, the resulting data collection, measurements and analysis.
