Paper Abstract

It is shown that commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) renderers can be used for covering the simultaneous fine temperature resolution and large dynamic range specifications associated with the demands of medium-wave infrared scene projection applications. Appropriate use of the RGB capabilities of the COTS renderer combined with redistribution of the binary scene data by using a nonlinear transformation enables the dual specifications for 0.1 degree Celsius small signal temperature resolution and > 400 degree Celsius range in simulated temperature difference to be simultaneously met.
