Title: Theoretical and experimental development of an atmospheric sensing suite for deep-turbulence research
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9451-12-M-0077
Award Amount: $99,652.00
 

Abstract:

ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR will produce a concept, and algorithms, for a Sensor Suite which can be used as a research tool to characterize strong atmospheric turbulence. Previous and on-going theories, statistics, and empirical data will be evaluated to arrive at an optimal Sensor design concept. That Sensor may exploit the superior resolution and performance inherent in the Radio-Hydro-Physics'Dispersed Fourier Transform Spectrometer, using a doublet of two DFTS"A- and R-Sensors and an interferometer configuration, all of which should have utility not only as a research tool, but also as a prototype, flyable Sensor package for ground, air, or space applications. BENEFIT: The Sensor suite developed in the course of this program will result in (a) higher resolution imaging, (b) highly accurate targeting, (c) precise beam directivity and pointing, (d) enhanced star maps, (e) improved airborne and space-based sensor performance, refined geo-spatial mapping, charting, geodesy, hydrography and lithography.
