Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the process of measuring the output of individual elements of a pixelized scene projector. The in-band scene projector is a key component of a sensor/seeker test facility such as the Kinetic Kill Vehicle Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulator (KHILS) at Eglin AFB, Florida. Analyses are presented which quantify errors associated with measuring the radiant intensity of individual pixels on a scene projector. The errors are broken down into sampling errors, truncation errors, and random measurement noise. The magnitude of each error source is determined as a function of parameters of the projector and sensor such as the element spacings, and blur. Guidelines for using this information to accurately and efficiently perform nonuniformity correction of a scene projector are presented.
