Paper Abstract

Radiometrically accurate simulation of InfraRed (IR) signatures is an essential prerequisite for valid IR sensor testing within the IR Scene Projection (IRSP) community. The Electronic Combat Stimulation (ECSTIM) Branch EO/IR Laboratory at the NAVAIR Air Combat Environment T&E Facility (ACETEF), NAWC-AD, Patuxent River, Maryland has recently begun validation testing of their Large Format Resistive-emitter Array (LFRA) IRSP. This is in preparation for developmental and operational testing of emerging mission-critical IR Countermeasure (IRCM) systems. Validation is guided by the Navy Air Defense Threat Simulator Validation Procedures Manual (NAWCWPNS TM 7489-3) and will support s other emerging high priority development programs such as the Joint Distributed IRCM Ground-test System (JDIGS). This paper discusses the ECSTIM/EO/IR Laboratory LFRA IRSP validation testing process, the resulting data collection, measurements and analysis.
