Paper Abstract

The KVACC is a part of the Air Force Kinetic-kill vehicle Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulator facility whose purpose is to enable IR scene projection with a below ambient `cold' background for increased dynamic range and closer simulation realism. The geometric and spectral description of the system will be presented in the paper along with discussion as to operational details including cleanliness requirements, vacuum pump down time, and chill down rates using LN2. In addition, the lessons learned from integration checkout using a 512 X 512 Cryogenic Resistor array Infrared Scene Projector will be annotated. Upgrade potential and future plans, including Helium refrigerators will also be detailed.
