Paper Abstract

The Guidance System Evaluation Laboratory of The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory developed a hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulation facility in 2000 for the test and evaluation of the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) kinetic warhead. We continue to expand on this architecture to facilitate the test of the tactically deployed SM-3 system. An overview and philosophy of the HWIL facility is described. Each of the key test equipment devices is described, along with an upgrade path that provides more accuracy and reliability, as well as increased test capability. The key components are the body dynamics simulation control computer, a scene rendering computer, a resistive-array IR scene projector, and support optics.
