Paper Abstract

A Scene Generation Test Capability (SGTC) is under development at Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) which uses Direct Write Scene Generation (DWSG) as a tool to project realistic mission scenarios into sensors operating in a simulated space system environment. This capability can reduce the risk associated with developing advanced sensor systems. The second phase of this program, a Focal Plane Array Test Chamber (FPATC), is currently underway which expands the capabilities of the phase one Transportable Direct Write Scene Generator (TDWSG) reported previously. Projection wavelengths for the system include 0.514, 1.06, 5.4 and 10.6 micrometers . Multiple chamber configurations will be used to accommodate different types of test articles. The FPATC is also transportable. User testing has begun in the TDWSG. This paper will present an overview of the current SGTC program.
