1. An image simulation system for providing a non-visible image for use by an image detection system, the image simulation system comprising:

  • a scene generator providing an electronic representation of a scene;

    a source of non-visible radiant energy providing a beam of radiant energy traveling along a first path; and

    an array of flexure beam micromirror elements receiving the electronic representation from the scene generator and reflecting the beam of radiant energy along a second path, wherein each element of the array is deflected according to the electronic representation, each deflected element phase-modulating a portion of the beam of radiant energy.
