  1. Theoretical and experimental development of an atmospheric sensing suite for deep-turbulence research

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: AF11BT41

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR will produce a concept, and algorithms, for a Sensor Suite which can be used as a research tool to characterize strong atmospheric turbulence. Previous and on-going theories, statistics, and empirical data will be evaluated to arrive at an optimal Sensor design concept. That Sensor may exploit the superior resolution and performance inherent in the Radio-Hydro-Physi ...

  3. Integrated or Fused Multi-spectral Sensor Technologies for Missile Warning Sensors (MWS), Hostile Fire Indication (HFI), and Laser Warning (LW)

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF112132

    ABSTRACT: Oceanit"s M2IWS system (Multi-Spectral, Multi-Threat Integrated Warning Sensor) provides an integrated"triple threat"sensor that combines missile warning (MW), laser threat warning (LW), and hostile fire indication (HFI) in one integrated sensor. These functions are currently performed by separate systems. These multiple systems take up too much valuable space on aircraft, and for small ...

  9. Multi-Sensor Data Compression

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF121140

    ABSTRACT: The compression of hyperspectral data is made more difficult by the requirement that the compressed data adequately serve a variety of diverse applications. Lossy compression methods will be evaluated with the requirements for tactical HSI analysis in mind. We propose to investigate two compression approaches, one based on sampling and reconstruction and the other on a fractal descrip ...
