Hardware-in-the-loop HWIL testing has been an integral part of the modeling and simulation efforts at the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Commands AMCOM Aviation and Missile Research, Engineering, and Development Center AMRDEC. ACOMs history includes the development and implementation of several unique technologies for producing synthetic environments in the visible infrared MMW and RF regions. With the emerging sensorelectronics technology LADAR sensors are becoming more viable option as an integral part of weapon systems, and AMCOM has been expending efforts to develop the capabilities for testing LADAR sensors in a HWIL environment. There are several areas of challenges in LADAR HWIL testing since the simulation requirements for the electronics and computation are stressing combinations of the passive image and active sensor HWIL testing. There have been several key areas where advancement have been made to address the challenges in developing a synthetic environment for the LADAR sensor testing. In this paper we will present the latest results from the LADAR projector development and test efforts at AMCOMs Advanced Simulation Center ASC.
