Abstract
The characterization, calibration, and mission simulation testing of space-based, interceptor, and airborne sensors require a continual involvement in the development and evaluation of radiometric projection technologies. Recent efforts at the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) include hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) testing with high-fidelity, complex scene projection technologies integrated into a low-cryovacuum (~20 K) environment as well as improvements in the radiometric source calibration systems. The latest scene simulation and projection technologies are being investigated, technologies that can produce desired target temperatures and target-to-sensor ranges that will make it possible to evaluate sensor mission performance. These technologies include multiple-band source subsystems and special spectral tailoring methods, as well as comprehensive analysis and optical properties measurements of the components involved. This paper discusses the implementation of such techniques at AEDC.
