Paper Abstract

A steerable laser infrared projector (SLP) has been designed by Aegis Research Corporation and is currently being integrated into the Kinetic Kill Vehicle Hardware-in-the- Loop Simulator facility located at the Wright Laboratory Armament Directorate, Eglin Air Force Base, FL. The SLP utilizes lead salt laser diodes as the projector sources and two-axis galvanometer beam scanners to project six independently controlled point source targets to the unit- under-test. The laser diodes provide high intensity, 16 BIT radiometric resolution targets while the galvanometers provide wide angle, high precision (16 BIT) beam steering performance. Due to the nonlinear relationship between the input drive current and the output power of the diodes the calibration of the multiple sources is critical to the successful utilization of the projector.
