Abstract

Typical threat missile signatures have a definitive characteristic color ratio signature. Infrared (IR) missile warning systems currently under development use two-color processing to discriminate missile threat signatures from non-threat signatures. It is necessary to have a dynamic color ratio capability to more realistically simulate various threat missile signatures. K Lab Corporation proposes to develop a portable, rugged packaged, robust dynamic color ratio IR simulator source. This 256x256 array dynamic colro ratio IR source will provide continuous spatial missile plume signature simulation. The source will be able to operate in a stand-alone mode or be integrated into existing test and evaluation systems.
