Abstract

The United States Special Operations Commands (USSOCOM) demands a color night vision system (CNVS) that combines low-light visual acuity with true-color imagery. A true-color night vision sensor would enable better exploitation of the human visual perceptive system allowing for more robust target detection, identification, and recognition. Current night vision systems offer only monochrome imagery limiting the ability for users to adequately perform intelligence, surveillance, recognizance (ISR) tasks. Recent advances in high-sensitivity CMOS sensors offers the opportunity to make advancements in the field of low-light color imaging through the use of advanced color processing algorithm techniques. Toyon proposes the development of a true-color night vision capable camera based on a combination of the latest in low-light, global shutter CMOS sensor technology and advanced algorithms for providing true-color imagery in demanding low-light environments. Toyon is actively involved in the development of low-SWaP, high-performance camera-cores and associated image processing algorithms targeting fixed-wing aircraft platforms.
