Contract: N00024-12-C-4133
Award Amount: $741,271.00
 

Abstract:

The polarimetric signatures of various representative targets in a representative marine environment from a stable platform of a representative height will be collected across two (threshold) to four (objective) wavebands from the following: Vis, SWIR, MWIR, LWIR. The data will be analyzed to determine both the relative performance improvement over standard radiance images in the chosen wavebands and the relative performance of the chosen polarimetric wavebands. This analysis will support a data-driven decision to down-select a single waveband for further concept development and design for the Future Photonics Mast.
