NightGuard - Real-Time SWIR Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor for Day/Night Operations
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
ChemImage has previously demonstrated the utility of a SWIR sensor for stationary and on the move (OTM) explosive detection, disturbed earth detection and camouflage concealment and detection. ChemImage proposes the combination of a shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensor with active illumination sources to allow for both daytime and nighttime operations. We call this sensor "NightGuard". The illumination source(s) will incorporate IR long pass filters to eliminate any visible light emitted from the source(s) and allow for only IR light to illuminate the scene. The IR light is eye safe and invisible to visible sensors. By incorporating real-time anomaly detection and classification algorithms in the software package associated with the sensor, the system will have the utility to perform autonomous detection of a wide variety of targets.
