Paper Abstract

Scene generation requirements are continually driven by increasingly complex threat and seeker/sensor hardware. Improvements in testing technology, which traditionally lag the development of new devices, have progressed significantly in recent years. The cost of extensive flight testing of surveillance and interceptor devices has given renewed interest to functional testing in a laboratory environment. Scene complexity has had to be greatly expanded to meet this need. Calibration curves are no longer sufficient to meet the growing needs of functional testing. This paper traces the historical development of LWIR sensor/seeker scene generation and projection technology. Electronic, all-digital and inband techniques are included.
