Title: Vision Processor for Helmet System (VPHS)
Agency: DOD
Contract: FA8560-13-M-6422
Award Amount: $149,772.00


ABSTRACT: The proposed VPHS (Visual Processor for Helmet Systems) is an advanced technology image processing engine that is designed to provide the image processing requirements of helmet mounted imaging systems. The VPHS will input high resolution image data from imaging sensors, process that data to yield enhanced visualizations and output the imagery to operator displays. The VPHS will employ imaging algorithms to provide for digital fusion of the sensor imagery and other sophisticated image processing functions. The VPHS will support sensor resolution up to 2560x2048 formats and up to 96Hz frame rate with less than 1 frame latency. The unit will specifically target minimum SwaP to meet helmet mounted system requirements. BENEFIT: The VPHS will be developed primarily for man portable applications with the helmet systems being the primary application. The advanced technology image processor will support hosting the most sophisticated image processing algorithms, affording users the ability to"see"at night and during period of impaired visibility. The technology is projected to provide a general purpose application architecture, and with minimal impact on the size, weight and power requirements of the target systems. The open source nature of the VPHS will allow it to be integrated into a host of systems and application environments.
