Paper Abstract

The advent of missile seekers with dual-spectrum (simultaneous radar frequency/millimeter wave (RF/MMW) and optical) tracking systems has led to a requirement to develop the simulation tools necessary to test these systems. One of the most important tools for testing missile hardware is a full-seeker hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulation. There is a substantial effort to improve the ability to generate and project RF/MMW imagery and optical imagery separately to systems under test. However, the dynamic real-time generation and simultaneous projection of realistic dual-band imagery to these seekers continues to be a major technological challenge. The purpose of this paper is to discuss methods and issues inherent in dual-spectrum seeker HWIL simulation.
