Paper Abstract

Arnold Engineering Development Center's (AEDC) Focal Plane Array Test Chamber (FPATC) is currently operational and has been involved in the testing and evaluation of focal plane arrays (FPAs) developed for interceptor applications. Testing included blackbody characterization, laser compatibility, and projection of AEDC test patterns and scenes. Efforts continue to be made to improve the capability of direct write scene generation (DWSG) to support the latest in FPA technology. A demonstration of closed-loop operation has been accomplished.
