Paper Abstract

A Missile Warning Receiver Integrated Support Station (MWR- ISS) was designed to perform missile engagement scenario testing with the AN/AAR-44 Missile Warning Receiver (MWR). The MWR-ISS employs the Real-Time Infrared Scene Simulator coupled with a real-time AN/AAR-44 sensor emulation to provide direct signal injection to the AN/AAR-44 Signal Processing Unit. Three sets of tests were performed to demonstrate the radiometric validity of the MWR-ISS. The first test demonstrated the accuracy of the sensor emulator through a comparison of measured laboratory collimator data with simulated data. The second test demonstrated correlation between live missile firings as observed by the AN/AAR-44 at White Sands Missile Range and simulation of the fringes using the MWR-ISS system. The third test demonstrated correlation between live missile firings as observed by the AN/AAR-44 at the Holloman Sled Track and simulation of the firings using the MWR-ISS system.
