Miniature Hyperspectral Imaging System

Solid State Scientific Corporation is pleased to propose a Phase II program to enhance the state of current threat warning systems such as missile threat warning or hostile fire indication sensors. Algorithm concepts using bands in the visible through the (uncooled) SWIR will be explored for identifying threats and their angle of arrival while rejecting false alarm sources in clutter environments. The band pass of the narrow-band filters in the prototype will be selected to demonstrate MTW or HFI capability without the need for dewars or refrigerators. In addition, a unique spectral imaging sensor prototype for threat warning will be developed. This Phase II approach will capitalize on the design concepts created duringthe Phase I effort. The novel spectral imager will operate in visible and/or uncooled SWIR, have a 90degrees field of view, and use a 640'480 staring camera to capture multiple spectral images of the same scene at rates up to 200 Hz. All images will be spatially identical but with different spectral filters to pass multiple narrow MWIR bands selected specifically to address threat warning. The sensor system represents a fully integrated, portable sensor that will measure, display, store, and analyze spectral data. Development of this sensor represents a unique opportunity in spectral sensing and imaging.
