Paper Abstract

Missile warning systems (MWS) present unique problems for hardware-in- the-loop (HITL) testing compared to other sensors found on modern day military aircraft and ground vehicles. End-to-end testing of a UV MWS like the AN/AAR-47 and other non-imagine MWS require a stimulator capable of large intensity dynamic range, moderate temporal response, and the capability to provide simultaneous optical signatures to all four systems sensors. These requirements dictate a different type of stimulator than is normally used with more conventional UV, visible, and IR imaging systems using imaging sensors and relatively narrow fields of view (FOV) on the other of 10-30 degrees. This paper describes both the requirements for a non-imaging UV MWS and the design used to satisfies the requirement for hardware and software testing of the AN/AAR-47 and other non-imaging UV MWS equipment.
