Paper Abstract

During the past several years, the Optical Signatures Technology Group of the Boeing Military Airplane Company has created an experimental facility for the measurement of infrared radiation from jet engine exhaust systems. Using the Large Test Chamber (LTC) of the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company, the largest anechoic propulsion chamber in the United States, a capability for obtaining a large variety of data on the infrared signatures of exhaust systems has been developed. A preliminary test was conducted in 1978; this test demonstrated that the LTC was highly suitable for such measurements and provided information for facility development and additional equipment purchase. Another test in 1979 fully validated the LTC as a facility for infrared signature measurements and provided extensive data on several nozzle and mixer configurations.
