  1. Utilizing Optical Defocusing and Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Devising a means to reduce the fluence at the image sensor by a factor of 100 would eliminate the threat from all but the largest, cumbersome sources. We propose that the needed fluence reduction can be achieved by operating the existing imager at a strongly defocused setting, and applying hardware-accelerated existing state-of-the-art image deblurring algorithms to its data stream. Several exist ...

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A08064

    In this program, Agiltron Incorporated and Wake Forest University jointly propose to develop an innovative optical limiter using a computational imaging system using pupil-phase engineering, which is a nonlinear optimization approach that seeks to determine the best pupil phase distribution that achieves a balance among various competing requirements of high energy spread, high SNR, insensitivity ...

  3. Multi-differential Optical Trigger Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A08078

    Agiltron proposes a new multi-differential laser radar (MDLIDAR) optical trigger detection system. The design innovatively implements multiple stages of both optical hardware and image processing firmware filtering to reject background noise and clutter. The incorporated technologies include differentiations in polarization, spectra, time-domain, and space to achieve unsurpassed high detection se ...

  4. Waveband-Switchable Low Cost IR Camera

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A04117

    Agiltron has developed and demonstrated fabrication capability for a new category of photomechanical IR imagers that convert infrared radiation into visible images using a conventional visible-light CMOS camera. This breakthrough photo-mechanical thermal image technology potentially offers next generation thermal camera performance attributes of: Large Pixel Array High Resolution Sensor; Low Cost ...

  5. Compact Unit for Eye-Safe Standoff Explosive Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08055

    The goal of this work is to develop a novel Raman scattering spectrometer for advance standoff detection of IEDs and suicide bomber threats. When using the proposed instrument, we will obtain rapid, chemical-specific analysis at standoff distances of up to 30 m. This instrument will have significantly increased detection sensitivity, measurement accuracy and analysis rates compared to more conve ...

  6. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the detectors¡¦ limited resolution, which re ...

  7. Automated Knowledge Structuring of Medical Charts Data

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD08H07

    Some major military health problems are caused or exacerbated by environmental factors. Gulf War Syndrome, reactions to Agent Orange, and other such problems tend to have diverse symptoms and delayed (and variable) latencies to onset. A major reason they are so difficult to identify, diagnose, and manage is capability shortfalls in military (and civilian) medical information systems. Linkages amon ...

  8. Fostering Leadership for Ethical Climate-Setting (FLEC-S)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A08002

    In modern warfare, Soldiers frequently encounter situations that require sound ethical judgment. Recently there has been an increase in the situations where Soldiers have display unethical behavior in the face of trying circumstances. Given this, it is imperative that an ethical climate is established to guide Soldiers’ judgments and actions. To meet this need, Aptima will develop a training ...

  9. BioSurveillance Indicators of Notable Events (BioSINE)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD06H03

    The potential for biological catastrophes, whether acts of war or naturally occurring, requires military leaders to confront a variety of vexing scenarios. Commanders will be tasked with making difficult decisions that have critical implications for personnel, resources, and mission objectives. The systems currently available to support such decision efforts are disparate, incomplete and inconcl ...

  10. Adaptive Game for Auditory Training and Evaluation (AGATE)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD08H02

    Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has been called the signature wound of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The rise in overall survival rates and increase in brain injuries can be attributed to advances in medical technology and Kevlar body armor, which effectively protects soldiers from otherwise fatal blows, but leaves the head and neck area unprotected. The most frequent cause of injuries among more than 2 ...
