Paper Abstract

The Optical Evaluation Facility (OEF) at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) has developed and incorporated various test and analysis methods and procedures. The testing may be as simple as examining a point image or as complex as combining weighted interferogram information of three wavelengths to obtain the "white-light" response of the system being tested. The spectral range for testing components and systems varies from 0.45 to 11.0 microns. The varied hardware and facilities capabilities of the OEF will be discussed. The different testing methods used will be examined in detail. New techniques for testing visible and IR systems will be presented.
