  2. Passive Radiometry Based Aerial Navigation

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...

  4. Design, Reconfigure, and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...

  5. Low Loss, High Average Power PM WDMs for Raman Fiber Lasers

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: AF13AT03

    We propose a new fiber WDM fabrication method for single mode high power fiber laser. Our new approach will enable kW operation for both single mode fiber WDM and PCF WDM. In Phase I, a proof of concept experiment has been demonstrated. In phase II, we will target at delivery of a reliable prototypes for both step index fiber WDM and PCF WDM.

  6. ITACTIC- Infrared Target Acquisition, Classification, and Tracking via Image Compression

    SBC: Inview Technology Corporation            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: Rice in concert with Inview Technologies will design, simulate, and evaluate compressive algorithms for object detection and classification in both static and dynamic imaging. The eventual goal is the application of the most suitable methods in novel short-wave and mid-wave infrared optical architectures for high-speed discovery and tracking by exploiting sparse signatures. We will compa ...

  7. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: Digital binocular helmet-mounted display (HMD) systems are now available that allow high resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) digital imagery to be displayed on high resolution microdisplays. These digital HMD systems require a low-latency embedded vision processor (LLEVS) capable of implementing the necessary image processing algorithms. An SA Photonics LLEVS will be implemented on next ...

  8. Broad Spectrum Optical Property Characterization

    SBC: SPECTRAL MOLECULAR IMAGING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT12

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a flexible, low-cost, integrated and sensitive broad spectrum optical property characterization system. We propose a hyperspectral imager designed for operation in the 300nm 2000nm spectral region with state-of-the-art spectral and spatial resolution through the use of a high density array of high finesse (F = 1000) tuna ...
