Abstract:

The AFOST is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical breakthrough required in the successful development of variable acuity and computationally efficienct sensors. Our strategy is to address the limitations that exist in current Scene Large format sensors, namely reducing the high data throughput associated with large format arrays allowing detection and transmittal of the small fraction of the scene that has useful data. In order to perform useful tasks with this technology, Cyan has developed on FPA processing circuitry concepts that detect scene activity and can allow Automatic Selection of Foveal region anywhere within the image without an external processor cue. This on FPA scene activity architecture can detect targets with lower noise levels than FPAs that perform target detection using an external processor.
