Abstract
In order to provide a set of field test equipment for the infrared system of modern weapon equipments and other optics instruments, a set of large-scale resistance-type infrared target system was designed. First, the large-scale infrared target was designed in modular construction. It was decomposed into several independent and controllable units. Then the working principle of the system was introduced. Three modes of thermal exchange (conduction, convection and radiation) and the computing methods for each mode were given under thermal equilibrium conditions through modeling and simulating. Periphery electro-circuit and control software were carried out as well. Finally, the performance of the system was tested. Meanwhile novel ways of temperature compensation to improve the uniformity of the surface temperature of the target was introduced. The experimental results show that the infrared target could meet test requirements for infrared imaging weaponry which wavelengths from 8 μm to 14 μm. The temperature control precision can reach 0.5ms. In conclusion, the infrared target system can satisfy requirements of reliability, high precision, as well as strong anti-jamming and stabilization.
