Motion-Detecting Imager Based on Insect Vision for Autonomous Seeker Applications
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Tanner Research is proposing to develop analog VLSI circuitry for a motion-detecting imager based on the biological paradigm of insect vision, for application to a new class of seekers for autonomous guided weapons.Our hardware development is proposed in the context of eventual application in a f simple, cheap autonomous weapons of limited capability are simultaneously deployed in such a way as to insure high probability of mission success. To this end, groundwork for model-building and simulation of autonomous ject. By adopting such an innovative strategic approach, we shall overcome the technical issues that have thwarted the practical application of on-focal-plan motion-sensing imagers in previous experimental implementations.
