Abstract
Ground testing of space and airborne imaging sensor systems is supported by visible-to-long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging sensor calibration and characterization, as well as hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulation with high-fidelity complex scene projection to validate sensor mission performance. To accomplish this successfully, there must be the development and evaluation of technologies that are used in space simulation chambers for such testing, including emitter-array cryotesting, silicon-carbide mirror cryotesting, and flood-source development. This paper provides an overview of the efforts being investigated and implemented at Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC).
