Award List:

Enhancing High-Resolution Imagery for Space Situational Awareness with Lucky Imaging and Adaptive Optics

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,746.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
E. Keith Hege, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
We propose the development and laboratory demonstration of a method that will revolutionize the high resolution satellite imaging capabilities of ground-based optical systems. Current imaging systems supporting Space Situational Awareness (SSA), even those equipped with state-of-the-art adaptive… More

Advanced Multi-Frame Blind Deconvolution for Imaging in Daylight and Strong Turbulence Conditions

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,794.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
E. K. Hege, Senior Scientist – (520) 907-1857
Abstract:
We will develop new computational techniques to extend the reach of large ground-based optical systems, enabling high resolution imaging of satellites under daylight conditions. Current state-of-the-art systems, such as the 3.6 m AEOS telescope, dramatically underperform in such conditions because… More

Implementing the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm for Imaging in Daylight and Strong Turbulence

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$749,490.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
E. K. Hege, Senior Scientist – (520) 907-1857
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: A new algorithm, the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm (DORA), has been developed. DORA includes a novel implementation of the multi-frame blind deconvolution image restoration concept which recovers high-quality object estimates from sequences of degraded images. DORA removes the… More

Light-weight, compact SWIR and MWIR imaging interferometer for space

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,731.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Douglas Hope, Staff Scientist – (808) 214-3517
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: We propose a novel SWIR/MWIR imaging system targeted for deployment at geosynchronous orbits. The new system is based on interferometric principles, is scalable, light-weight, and uses easily replicable inexpensive optics. The optics, detectors, and interferometric signal processing… More

Efficient Photometry from Serendipitous Detection of Stars

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,454.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Douglas Hope, Senior Scientist – (808) 214-3517
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Research Objectives: 1) Determine the viability and accuracy of photometric calibration of Resident Space Object (RSO) observations using light from stars serendipitously recorded in the RSO images across the full range of ground-based image data collection scenarios in EO/IR wavebands.… More

Award Amount:
$749,960.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Douglas Hope, Senior Scientist – (808) 214-3517
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Research Objectives: 1) Quantify the size, weight, power consumption and cost of flight units of the Space-based InfraRed Imaging Interferometer (SIRII) sensor. 2) Quantify the fundamental advantages of the interferometric approach in comparison to conventional sensor design. 3) Quantify… More
