Paper Abstract

The TSG is used for evaluating infrared missile seekers by dynamic targets and EOCM realistic environment. The system generates multi mode primary and secondary targets, up to three flares and jammers combined with thermal background image of 10 degree(s) field of view. Each component is independently controlled to provide 2D trajectory, velocity and acceleration. Four orders of magnitude in LOS angular velocity can be accomplished. The system allows for variation of sources angular size, radiated intensity and other spatial and temporal modulation. All sources are combined in a collimated output beam. The beam is further projected through an optical relay and a Field Of Regard assembly. This mechanism displays the whole scenario in a wide angle span onto the seeker aperture. Further system improvements involves combining dynamic infrared scene projector with high temperature sources under real time high dynamics, for better performances with imaging seekers of maneuvered platforms.
