Abstract:

Providing a fast and accurate way to deliver target images to a small caliber autonomous projectile, using only a single camera, remains a major challenge, particularly for applications demanding rapid responses (e.g., in combat environments). Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS), in collaboration with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientists, proposes to develop a breakthrough improved target tracking tool, using the "3-D reconstruction from shape" effect. This technique will use advanced mathematical techniques to construct dynamically changing scene representations that create pseudo 3-D models of 2-D scenes and objects, using only 2-D images as input. This approach can greatly enhance the identification of moving targets in static and cluttered backgrounds. In Phase I, IOS developed proof of concept software for targeting and processing 3-D models from images, and produced a working demonstration of the system using realistic images and video. In Phase II, IOS will extend and improve this system, and will transmit a resized and enhanced image to a breadboard memory prototype representative of a potential projectile targeting system.
