  6. Multiframe Super Resolution Leveraging Machine Learning

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A18002

    Situational awareness is an essential component in ensuring the safety of rotorcraft aircrew and aircraft from human error and hostile threats. Multiple optical sensors mounted on rotorcraft provide situational awareness in the form of high frame rate video for operators to view or automated algorithms to process. The utility of the information provided by these sensors is often limited by the res ...

  10. Navigation-Grade Micro-Electro-Mechanical-System (MEMS) Accelerometer Technologies

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A18088

    The next generation of UAVs, missile interceptor seekers and combat and surveillance aerial vehicles are placing more demands on the navigation-grade IMUs. Existing navigation-grade accelerometers are expensive and bulky. MEMS accelerometers are very attractive due to their compactness and low cost. However, consumer-grade MEMS accelerometers have higher noise floors, smaller ranges, and higher th ...
