  2. Sky Polarization-based Orientation Tracking for Live Training Environments

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A14070

    The Sky Polarization Azimuth Sensing System (SkyPASS) exploits naturally occurring sky polarization to measure absolute heading and offers significant performance enhancement over current azimuth sensing systems such as digital compasses or ring laser gyros. The SkyPASS system is a passive optical sensor that can operate at 10s of Hz, has no warm-up or calibration time, does not require leveling, ...

  4. IR Imaging Polarimetry for Human Identification

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16024

    Covert and robust recognition of individuals is a goal for military check points and entry control points overseas and for law enforcement and border control domestically.Face recognition in the visible spectrum is an important biometric modality and while it has increased in maturity, there are situations in which imaging in different spectral bands are desirable.Thermal polarization has been sho ...

  5. Optically Registered Polarimetric Imaging LWIR Sensor

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A16024

    The Department of the Army has identified long wave infrared (LWIR) polarimetry as a means for enhanced detail of human imagery for facial recognition. In addition, polarimetry has been shown to improve image contrast, detect anthropomorphic objects in high clutter scenes, and provide 3D shape information. However, many polarimeters operate using rotating polarization filters or retarders, which r ...

  9. Matched Filter Chaos Communications

    SBC: TORCH TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A11AT002

    It has recently been mathematically proven that optimal communication systems necessarily have chaotic waveforms. Perhaps surprisingly, any communication system that utilizes a simple linear matched filter to achieve optimal detection of a signal, received by way of a noisy channel, must transmit a chaotic waveform. Using the concept of exactly-solvable chaos, communication systems can be built ...
