This report results from a contract tasking Institute of Semiconductor Physics, Ukrainian Academy of Sciences as follows This research will lead to improvements in the equipment used to test and calibrate infrared imaging systems operating at a multiple wavelength regions multispectral remote sensing. This research can contribute to many aspects of gas detection as well as the characterization, calibration, and testing of infrared and night vision cameras used for fire fighting, agriculture, medical imaging and industrial thermography. The basic technology may also have an important role in the development of related devices for electronic cinema applications. An investigation of principally new Joule heating free approach toward the development of dynamic IR scene simulation technology is the objective of this research. The primary goal is to develop, fabricate and test Multi-Spectral Dynamically Controllable Point Source capable of generating positive and negative apparent temperatures as compared to background temperature with frame rate ranging to well beyond 200 Hz. While silicon is not fully eliminated as the material under this study, the main impact is being made at other promising semiconductors which have been bypassed till now as the base of innovative sources highly spectrally-controlled in up to three bands visible 8-10um 10- 12um simultaneously.
