Contract: W15QKN-10-C-0029
Award Amount: $69,993.00


Coherent Logix, Incorporated (CLX) proposes the development of an integrated large format detector array and low-power, high performance HyperX parallel processor to increase the situational awareness capabilities of the modern warfighter. This system will combine the high bandwidth and glueless logic interface capabilities of the HyperX processor to couple the raw data stream to dynamic processing algorithms that enable the soldier to intelligently allocate system resolution on targets of interest. The HyperX architecture excels in low-power, embedded applications that require small form factor, low part count, high levels of computing resources, ease of programming and expansion headroom. CLX will design the system to be deployed in Soldier Systems, unmanned ground / air vehicles, and unattended ground sensors where size, weight, and power are at a premium. The CLX SAFER prototype will demonstrate the capability to capture images from up to a 12 MPixel array at 30 fps and dynamically process the video stream to enhance the native spatial resolution and illumination dynamic range. Several key technologies will be utilized to accomplish the system objectives including high speed readout circuits, low-power parallel processing, dense component packaging, and image processing algorithms that dynamically interact with the soldier and detector array.
