Paper Abstract

The AEDC infrared (IR) test facilities include several equipment assemblies: a 7 foot diameter low background sensor performance evaluation and calibration chamber, a sensor out-of-field rejection measurement system, mirror scatter measurement apparatus, and a sensor closed-loop control system test capability. These facilities, their optics, and the IR radiation sources used are described, along with improvements currently in work or planned.
