Abstract:

Providing a fast and accurate way to deliver an image of the target to a small caliber autonomous projectile using a single camera remains a major challenge, particularly in applications that demand rapid response in combat environments. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS), in collaboration with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, proposes to develop an improved 3-D reconstruction methodology using the "3-D 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 will develop advanced software for creating and processing 3-D models from images, and will produce a working demonstration of the system using realistic images. In Phase II, IOS will extend and improve this system, and will transmit a resized and enhanced image to a breadboard memory representative of a potential projectile-carried memory.
