Paper Abstract

A new method for IR scene simulation and test pattern generation is presented. The principle was first demonstrated at the Center for Night Vision and Electro-Optics (CNVEO) using a laboratory black body source at 40 C, an image diffusion transfer film bearing the projected image and a germanium lens which projected the IR image into a FLIR. Varying effective IR densities are formed in this film by a specularly reflecting layer of pure silver, in which densities depend on prior exposure to light, development and diffusion transfer. Resolution of the film was demonstrated in the visible spectrum to exceed 50 line pairs/mm. The film lends itself to still and motion picture projection over an IR spectrum of at least 2 to 50u.
