Paper Abstract

This paper describes a simulation and analysis of a sensor viewing a 'pixelized' scene projector like the KHILS' Wideband Infrared Scene Projector (WISP). The main objective of this effort is to understand and quantify the effects of different scene projector configurations on the performance of several sensor signal processing algorithms. We present simulation results that quantify the performance of two signal processing algorithms used to estimate the sub-pixel position and irradiance of a point source. The algorithms are characterized for different signal-to-noise ratios, different projector configurations, and two different methods for preparing images that drive the projector. We describe the simulation in detail, numerous results obtained by processing simulated images, algorithms and projector properties, and present conclusions.
