Abstract:

RDRTec Inc. and The John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) propose to gather data in support of the development of techniques that will enable the efficient and effective detection and tracking of Small Maritime Targets (SMT) at high altitudes. This capability will be incorporated as an upgrade to the currently funded Radar Collision Avoidance System (RACAS) under development by ONR and NAVAIR as a Sense and Avoid (SAA) initiative for transition into the MQ-8. Innovative polarimetric imaging techniques will be addressed that have the potential to significantly improve Small Maritime Target (SMT) detection and classification capabilities.
