Paper Abstract

CI Systems has made progress in the quest for ever more realistic simulation of infrared scenes for testing of advanced missiles. This has been achieved by building a completely automatic PC controlled electro-optical system which reproduces a textured object, moving with respect to a background, as it is seen by an approaching missile with a 3 to 5 (mu) FLIR. An independently moving and approaching countermeasure is also present in the scenario. The missile approach is simulated by a 10:1 infrared zoom; the radiance texture of both the object and the background are achieved by an infrared transparency, whose pixel radiance can be chosen from among 256 gray levels.
