Abstract:

Voxtel Inc. proposes to optimize a novel and robust real-time, single-pulse, computed tomographic imaging infrared spectropolarimic ladar (CTIIRSPL) that acquires full multispectral and polarization information for all points within the FOV withhigh-resolution range and range resolved intensity images for detection and identification of difficult targets. The Voxtel CTIIRSPL system is integrated with a tunable, multispectral and polarimetry capability, operating in the eyesafe SWIR & MWIR (1 to 5micron)spectral bands, which is less susceptible than the NIR to battlefield obscurants and more responsive to target reflections than the LWIR. A powerful, yet flexible, signal processor and target classifier, using newly available signal processingarchitectures, will be integrated with the system. Demonstration and validation in the FastTrack Phase II effort will lead to a miniaturized, monolithic architecture, which will be optimized for a variety of military and commercial applications. This workis applicable in target recognition and navigation in civil and industrial applications. Other applications benefiting from the innovation includes: intelligent robots, medical imaging, surveillance, remote sensing, mapping synthetic structures, and otheractive imaging applications.
