  2. Infrared Seeker Performance Metrics

    SBC: INVARIANT CORP.            Topic: A02158

    Advances in imaging infrared (IIR) technology and demonstration of this technology as a capable means of target discrimination, automatic target recognition (ATR), and auto-tracking have led to the development of numerous IIR weapon systems. Although excellent analysis tools exist for describing the imaging sensors themselves, no adequate method or tools exist for characterizing the auto-detectio ...

  6. Finishing of Conformal Optics in Hard Materials

    SBC: OPTIPRO SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: SB032026

    Deterministic microgrinding of aspheric, dome shaped, and conformal optics has become a critical competency for many commercial and military applications. The finishing and polishing of these complex shapes, especially when they have deep concave surfaces is still in need of a robust affordable deterministic solution. Our plan in Phase II for the Finishing of Conformal Optics in Hard Materials is ...

  7. Production of Non-Traditional Optical Surfaces for Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Guidance

    SBC: QED Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A02039

    While fulfilling the direct function as a part of imaging and sensors system, optics for future airborne weapons must conform to the aerodynamic shape of the missile or aircraft body. Replacing the historically hemispheric domes on missiles with more aerodynamic shapes results in benefits such as reduced drag, greater speeds, shorter time to target, longer range and overall greater lethality. Co ...

  10. Self-Localization of MicroSensors using Ultra-Wideband RF

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB043043

    The goal of this project is to investigate and provide an Ultra-Wideband Time of Flight (TOF) ranging system for determining inter-node separation distance, and location of, nodes in a wireless sensor network. Ranging/location capability is important to these applications, because correlating sensor data with physical location increases the value of the sensor data. As TDC has already demonstrat ...
