Paper Abstract

DGA/DCE/LRBA, the French MoD missiles and navigation evaluation center has developed several HWIL facilities in order to test the IR-autoguidance-loops of tactical missiles. LRBA has initiated the acquisition of SPECTRAL, a dedicated hardware and software configuration. SPECTRAL (Multipurpose System for Laboratory Evaluation of Image Processing Calculators) is a complete system including hardware and software designed for the evaluation of different missile functions or equipment (on-board image processing software, image processing calculators, imagers, terminal guidance and control performances). The main feature of this system is its capability to generate images representative of those elaborated by an infrared missile seeker, in real time. SPECTRAL is designed with an architecture for a multi-user environment including workstations carrying out several operations. Acceptance Test Procedures of SPECTRAL are being discussed and the first results are presented here. As a conclusion, we provide a comparison with existing image generating systems at LRBA's facilities.
