Research Institution
The tactical unmanned ground vehicles (TUGV) are envisioned to be the force multiplier of the future. A reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition (RSTA) system is a key component for a TUGV. International Electronic Machines (IEM), aleader in rugged multimedia systems, proposes the development of an innovative imaging system which will meet all of the requirements of this solicitation. The proposed multi-spectral imaging system will be based on an nnovative image scanning approachwhich will use unique multi-spectral optics to deliver the recognition requirements, 135 degree FOV, virtual pan-tilt-zoom feature, day/night operation, high frame rate, innovative user interface, and a scalable approach. In Phase I of this proposal, IEMwill produce a feasible design and demonstrate the feasibility of the key components of the imaging system. Optional tasks include image processing development for image quality enhancement, image processing algorithm development and environmentalhardening. The technology resulting from this program will find additional applications in security systems, telemaintenance, telemedicine and virtual reality training tools both in the military and the civilian sectors
