Abstract

This paper reviews recent development and application of the infrared version of the liquid crystal light valve (LCLV). We describe delivered IR image projectors for advanced end-to-end laboratory testing of IR seeker and sensor systems. System performance characteristics are given. A newly developed version of the device has much higher contrast with low IR background image capability.
