Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar with Real-Time Imaging of Sniper Bullets and Terrain
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Helios Remote Sensing Systems and SRC will develop an automatic short-range ballistics search-track-imaging system that provides to individual soldiers a unique capability for rapidly determining the location of threats that would reduce injuries and casualties. By leveraging recent breakthroughs in retrodirective auto-cued radars, 360o video imaging technology, and cell phone technology, we plan to develop and demonstrate these new technological capabilities for imaging sniper bullet trajectories along with the local terrain environment. The new radar technology will be integrated with advanced data processing and battlefield visualization algorithms emerging from private industry and DoD research programs to provide real-time imaging of the projectile assaults overlaid onto the surrounding 3-D terrain and environment. The total sensor system concept includes an integrated 360o retrodirective, auto-cued vehicle mounted radar, 360o camera system, and a vehicle mounted data processing base station that is wireless interfaced to man-carrier miniature imaging displays. The proposed sensor system will be capable of day-night and severe environment operation.
