Ultra High Temperature Large Format DMD-based IR Scene Projector

Press Release

Press Release

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to develop an Ultra High Apparent Temperature Large Format Infrared Scene Projector (UHAT-LF-IRSP).

This UHAT-LF-IRSP will employ digital micromirror device (DMD) technology with structured quantum cascade laser (QCL) illumination, addressing MDA’s requirements for next generation scene projector capabilities to keep pace with evolving threats and associated threat detection sensors.

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 wider format scenes than supported by currently available IRSP systems employing emitter arrays, LEDs, and conventional DMD-based architectures. The IRSP will be well suited for training and test of commercial sensors and algorithms used to detect fires from remote locations including CubeSat constellations and terrestrial sensors for the monitoring of ship’s holds and warehouses
