Paper Abstract

Achieving very high apparent temperatures is a persistent goal in infrared scene projector (IRSP) design. Several programs are currently under way to develop technologies for producing high apparent temperatures. Producing a useful system capable of reproducing high fidelity scenes across a large range of apparent temperatures requires more than just a high temperature source. The entire scene projection system must support the extended dynamic range of the desired scenarios. Supporting this extended range places requirements on the rest of the system. System resolution and non-uniformity correction (NUC) are two areas of concern in the development of a high dynamic range IRSP. We report the results of some initial investigations into the resolution required for acceptable system performance and the effects of moving to a higher dynamic range may put on existing NUC procedures.
