Paper Abstract

The Wideband Infrared Scene Projector (WISP) was developed to project dynamic, detailed scenes to imaging infrared (IR) missile seekers. However, the vast majority of IR seekers currently in inventory are nonimaging and pseudo-imaging reticle-based seekers. Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) Dynamic Infrared Missile Evaluator (DIME) Facility is interested in the response of these conventional seekers to detailed IR scenes, as would be encountered in the final phase of a missile engagement. Conventional seekers have different scene projection requirements than the imaging seekers for which the WISP was designed. To assess the applicability of an IR scene projector for testing conventional seekers, DIME Facility personnel used two reticle-based seekers to measure spatial and temporal characteristics of the WISP. A description of the testing performed and the results obtained are presented in this paper.
