Paper Abstract

The scene generation test capability (SGTC) continues to be developed at Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) using direct write scene generation. This test tool will be able to present realistic mission scenarios directly to sensor focal plane arrays for developmental and operational test and evaluation, and will be integrated with the full-up sensor test capabilities at AEDC. The concept validation phase of this program provided an operational system which is currently involved in sensor testing. Noise measurements have also been made in some detail on this system. The final phase of the program will provide scene projection at three infrared wavelengths and one visible wavelength. This paper presents an overview of the current SGTC program, including experimental data taken with the concept validation hardware.
