The OLTC was developed to explore electro-optical (EO) missile system responses to countermeasures environments using simulation scene techniques. The OLTC consists of an automated rate table with scene generation equipment that provides radiation from three broad band xenon arc lamps, target and decoy blackbodies, and an HF/DF chemical laser. Signal conditioning, signal recording, and data logging equipment augment data collection from this facility. Simulation studies to ascertain design weaknesses of an EO missile system design are conducted using an actual missile seeker or a breadboard electronic model of the seeker.
