We report on the design and testing of a 2-color dynamic scene projector system based on the MIRAGE-XL infrared scene projector. The system is based on the optical combination of two 1024x1024 MIRAGE-XL resistive arrays. Algorithms derived for 2-color operation are discussed and system performance data is presented, including radiometric performance, sub-pixel spatial co-registration and compensation for spectral cross-talk.
