Paper Abstract

A continual effort to develop the latest scene simulation technologies into actual space simulation test chambers is necessary to ensure that the U.S. has the proper ground test capabilities to test space defense systems. This involves the integration of high-fidelity, complex, and dynamic scene projection systems, including multiple-band source subsystems and the spectral tailoring methods used to simulate the desired target temperatures. Comprehensive analysis and measurement of the properties of the optical components involved are also required. This paper discusses implementation of these techniques in the space sensor test facilities of the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC).
