This paper describes the recent addition characterization and integration of emerging technologies for dynamic infrared scene projection at the US Army Aviation and Missile Commands AMCOM Advanced Simulation Center ASC. Infrared scene projection performs a vital role in the daily testing of tactical and theatre missile systems within these Hardware-in-the-Loop HWIL laboratories. Topics covered within this paper include the addition and characterization of new Honeywell and Santa Barbara Infrared emitter arrays. a five-axis flight motion table test configuration. unique calibrationNUC schemes. added software support, verificationvalidation results and supplemental projection systems. A new dynamic IR scene projector technology based upon the Digital Micromirror DeviceTM is also presented in the paper as well as example imagery from several of the projector systems.
