Abstract:

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 hyperspectral system based on uncooled detector technology that has been explored for use in airborne and groundbased IED and landmine detection experiments. The technical innovation will be to implement system modifications designed to increase the data collection rate sufficiently to promote real-time detection capabilities under 30 kph rate of advance conditions. The resultant sensor would be very compact and use a standard SADA mounted array for continuity with existing military procurements. The IR detector technology requires no technical development, using existing widely available HgCdTe IR cameras. Existing methods for obtaining similar LW HSI data are inherently more complex, having more precision moving components and electronics, leading to higher unit cost.
