Abstract:

Current large format sensors are limited in reaching their full potential on compact platforms due to the need to have large image processors and support electronics to process the data coming off the FPA at very high data rates. Seeking to match the brain's computational efficiency, we draw inspiration from its neural circuits to improve the bandwidth efficiency and acuity of large format imaging sensors. All biological systems require sensory information to detect and guide themselves. Cyan is building the AFOST to be able to extract and process the needed sensory information to alert the sensor user to a potential threat and zoom in on the region of interest in a way that is very computationally efficient and reduces the bottlenecks common to very large format imaging sensors.
