Title: A Field-Portable Polarization Imaging System for Remote Sensing
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-08ER85109
Award Amount: $99,987.00
 

Abstract:

With respect to its remote sensing responsibilities for verifying the nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the DOE is seeking instrumentation for the detection and analysis of polarized light. This project will develop an innovative field-portable polarization imaging solution, based on a high performance electro┬Čoptic polarization management technology. The resulting instrument will contain no moving parts and will be amenable to integration with most existing CCD (Charge Coupled Device) cameras. In this approach, a gray-level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) will be developed to represent the texture and a support vector machine (SVM) will be used as the classifier to categorize targets. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The technology should find application in many fields including environmental monitoring, medical diagnosis or biological fingerprint detection in life science, remote optical sensing and imaging, and target discrimination and minefield detection in defense.
