Physical Sciences Inc has been awarded a contract from the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to leverage our extensive experience in infrared scene projector (IRSP) design and harsh environmental operability to create a radiation hardened, hybrid, foveated, infrared scene projector (Rad Hard HF-IRSP).
PSI’s design allows long-life, low-maintenance operation of conventional optical components inside a pressure, thermal and radiation environment similar to that of low Earth orbit. A modular reconfiguration of the HF-IRSP is planned, creating the potential for a suite of radiation-hardened IRSP components that can be configured for the diverse needs of the infrared sensor test and evaluation community.
PSI’s IRSP technology will enable training and testing of the next generation of electro optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors including missile warning systems with higher fidelity, brighter, higher contrast, and higher frame rate scenes than supported by currently available IRSP systems. A custom-designed hermetically sealed radiation hardened enclosure will enable operation in space or manmade radiation, temperature and vacuum environments.
