Paper Abstract

The U.S. Army CECOM Center for Night Vision & Electro-Optics (C2NVEO) is upgrading the existing image evaluation facilities through the AutoSPEC (Automated Sensor/Processor Evaluation Center) program. The image evaluation portion of the AutoSPEC program is a major upgrade which includes entirely new optical systems, instrumentation, and data collection. The design of the laboratory is discussed along with the design and integration of the individual components into a measurement system. The capabilities of the high-speed image capture/processing/storage system will be presented. The design of the control software is also discussed, especially the user interface and the method developed for controlling and automating repetitive measurement tasks. Finally, the test capabilities of the laboratory are discussed. This includes the capability of the system to perform existing figure of merit measurements for wide-field-of-view pilotage systems as well as for narrow field of view targeting systems. New tests based upon the dynamic capabilities of the system are addressed. The flexibility of the system for future capabilities such as realistic scene/target simulation and projection is also addressed.
