The objective of the proposed work is to develop a hyperspectral sensor system in the 8 to 14 micron wavelength region (long wave infrared or LWIR) capable of detecting chemical agents of DoD and civil interest via spectral measurements at 4 wavenumber resolution. The technology is an evolution of… More
The proposed project will focus on the development of an ultra-sensitive chemical trace detector for underwater unexploded ordnance (UUXO) detection. The envisioned technology is suitable for diver and/or unmanned underwater vehicle deployment.
The objective of the proposed work is to develop a hyperspectral sensor system in the 7.5 to 12 micron wavelength region (long wave infrared, or LWIR) capable of detecting IEDs, EFPs, and landmines from a military vehicle at a rate of advance of 30 kph. The technology is an evolution of a LWIR… More
Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration… More
The objective of this project is to investigate an emerging spectral imaging technology having the capability of detecting and identifying improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), or landmines; at standoff distances of between 100 meters to 250 meters. Goal is… More
Our goal is to design and build a lightweight, wide area passive standoff imaging detection system capable of rapidly detecting liquids on surfaces for the purpose of contamination avoidance and reconnaissance. The envisioned technology extends the advantages of wide area passive infrared sensing… More
Project goal is to develop and demonstrate a chemical/explosive sensor system to provide enhanced detection and classification in missions for which acoustic or optical imaging alone are not effective. The chemical sensor package developed and delivered during this SBIR effort will be lightweight,… More
The US Army, in support of the Joint Contaminated Surface Detector program (JCSD) program, has expressed a need to extend the advantages of wide area passive infrared sensing of chemical contaminants to the problem of detecting liquids contaminants on surfaces. A passive wide area monitoring system… More
