Paper Abstract

To address the many challenges that are required to support testing of state-of-the-art guided weapons the Kinetic Kill Vehicle Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation (KHILS) facility located at Eglin AFB, FL has integrated two projector technologies into one Infrared (IR) projector. This new projector combines the capabilities of the resistor array technology with the capabilities of a non-imaging laser scanning projector (SLP) to provide KHILS with a unique testing asset. To provide representative simulations of the real world both systems will need to perform a radiometric and spatial calibration to the unit-under-test (UUT) and will need to be synchronized together. This projector was utilized to perform closed-loop hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) testing using real-time 3D scene generation to support several test entries. Using the UUT several measurements of the projector were proposed to characterize the performance of the two technologies. This paper will report the results of these tests along with the methods used to integrate the two projectors into one system.
