Aircraft Electro-Optical Avionics Flight Test Training


Aircraft Electro-Optical Avionics Flight Test Training Course Description

This three-day Aircraft Electro-Optical Avionics Flight Test Training emphasizes the fundamental knowledge needed by evaluators to successfully demonstrate functionality and performance of aircraft installed Electro-optical systems. The lectures lay the foundation on which all avionics systems. This module is designed to provide the first the theoretical concepts behind EO systems and to then cover the testing necessary to verify system performance. The lectures will cover Infra-red, TV and LASER systems: physics behind the design, types of thermal imaging devices, spatial frequency, range finders and designators, importance of optics and Modulation Transfer Functions (MTF).

The audience for this course will encompass Flight Test Engineers, Program Managers, military and civilian aerospace workers, and DT/OT evaluators. The course is appropriate for newly hired or assigned personnel at these locations as well as seasoned veterans in the Test and Evaluation areas.

Skills Gained:

Be familiar with the history, evolution and application of EO and IR systems. Understand the theory, flight test procedures, techniques and data analysis associated with electro-optic systems. You will also understand atmospheric propagation, target signatures. sources of radiation. spatial frequency and range predictions. electro-optic and infra-red test techniques, lasers and laser range finders.

Duration: 3 days

Course Content:

The initial portion of the course reviews radiation theory while the remainder presents a detailed analysis of typical active and passive Electro-optical systems components. The instruction stresses the most correct and efficient means of evaluating these systems and predicting systems performance in both ground and flight environments.

History, Evolution and Current Applications of EO Systems, EO Components (to include choices of detector elements) and Performance Requirements of Active and Passive EO Devices.

Sources of Radiation, Atmospheric Properties of Radiation, Target Signatures, Target Tracking and Automatic Target Recognition.

Target Discrimination and Range Predictions.

Passive EO Systems Flight Test Techniques and Active EO Systems Flight Test.

Two in-class exercises allow the students to calculate spatial frequencies and predict target discrimination ranges for multiple Imaging Systems.
