FreEnt Technologies, Inc., along with A2Z Innovations, Inc. (A2Z) and the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) are teaming together to design and develop a High-Speed Simultaneous Multiple Object Detection (HS-SMOD). The HS-SMOD system uses a simple but innovative technique of a passive fiber-optic grid and opto-electronic detectors to measure the initial and subsequent hit points of extremely high velocity impacts. Our passive technique does not have an upper end on impact velocity measurement; the greater the impact velocity, the more signal is received. The HS-SMOD fiber grid concept can be configured to cover many shapes, sizes and configurations. Our team will work to determine the ideal combination of optical fiber, detectors, and electronics. The team will develop software for real-time data capture and processing. We will then build a prototype of that system and demonstrate its capability.Approved for Public Release | 17-MDA-9219 (31 May 17)
