SBIR has passed the midpoint of delivering ten 1024x1024 IR Scene Projector Systems (IRSPs) to the Government. Six systems have been installed at Redstone Technical Test Center (RTTC), Patuxent River, and Edwards Air Force Base. Four more systems are in production and will be shipped by the end of this year. The commercial name of the LFRA IRSP is Mirage XL. This ground breaking projector technology is being leveraged on the Wide Format Resistive Array (WFRA) program and on the Mirage II product. The WFRA IRSP, also known as Mirage HD, features an even larger 1536x768 emitter array and will be in system integration by the end of the year. Mirage II, which also leverages LFRA, is being readied as the next generation 512x512 projector system. Additional signal processing capabilities have been installed in the LFRA systems. Each system now has full Translation/Rotation Processing (TRP) capability. Systems also have image convolution and 400Hz 1024x512 windowing capabilities.
