Not Available Space-based imaging techniques require optical techniques in order to optimize target-to-background contrast. To meet this need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes a Spectrally Optimized Smart (SOS) Camera, that will exploit and build on POC's proprietary Spectrally Adaptive Light Filtering (SALF) technology. POC's smart camera will simultaneously provide hyperspectral image acquisition and target-to-background contrast enhancement. POC's SALF technology is unique in its microsecond adjustability to light transmission at several spectral intervals, and simultaneous on-the-fly atmospheric hyperspectral image corrections, which are made directly in optical channel. These truly unique features eliminate the need for cumbersome computer hyperspectral images postprocessing, and therefore enable real-time, practical operations. POC's SOS Camera will operate in spectral intervals ranging from the visible to the middle wave IR, and will be able to track on-the-fly or stationary, or slow moving low contrast targets. The prototype SOS Camera will provide 512x512 pixels spatial resolution, at 30 frames per second. During Phase I, POC will design, fabricate, assemble, and test a prototype SOS Camera. In Phases II and III, POC will refine and optimize the SOS Camera for mass production and commercial distribution.
