  1. Title: Chemical/Biological Agent Standoff Detection

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: DTRA05004

    Spectral Sciences, Inc. proposes an innovative standoff detection system for remote detection and mapping of chemicals agents and other hazardous materials. The Adaptive Multiplex Spectrometer (AMS) is a general-purpose passive infrared sensor whose characteristics can be set on-the-fly in software. As a spectrograph, it would provide performance similar to the SORAD. It also can perform 1-D spec ...

  2. Computational Chemistry Applications to LOW Altitude Plume Signature Modeling

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: MDA04153

    The remote detection of infrared emissions from the hot plumes of boosting missiles is a core component of our missile defense system. Inherent in the detection and interpretation of these emissions is an accurate and detailed understanding of rocket plume phenomenology. We are proposing to develop and test techniques to substantially enhance the chemical mechanisms central to understanding plum ...

  3. Infrared Derivative Spectroscopy for Open Path Sensing

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: A05T021

    There is a long-standing military, homeland security and industry need for compact, portable sensors to remotely detect, identify and quantify chemical and biological warfare agents and other hazardous species at significant standoff ranges. Current LWIR Fourier transform spectrometers are mechanically complex and sensitive, and susceptible to interference from atmospheric background fluctuations ...

  4. Multi-scale Atmospheric Prediction System for Radiance Clutter (MAPS-C)

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF05037

    Atmospheric radiance clutter is a significant impediment to remotely-sensed target identification and surveillance. Clutter events arise from atmospheric phenomena occurring over wide vertical and horizontal scales. These include polar mesospheric clouds, aurora, stratospheric warming, thermal inversions, gravity waves, and mesospheric bores. To forecast radiance clutter from these events for any ...

  5. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF05T010

    A core component of aerospace manufacturing is based on cutting-edge materials used in extreme environments. Chemical kinetics models are vital for interpreting experimental measurements and predicting the behavior of these complex systems. For many applications, the reaction rates for all required chemical processes are unknown. We propose a versatile user-friendly computational package for ca ...

  6. Hyperspectral/Multispectral imaging for transient events

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: MDA05004

    There is a long-standing need for the development of fast single-frame spectral imaging instrumentation, also known as a "snapshot" or "flash" spectral imager, to study fast transient phenomena where retrieval of 3-dimensional hyperspectral data cubes provides crucial information. Spectral Sciences, Inc. proposes to develop the Multiplexing Array Spectral Camera (MASC) a snapshot spectral imager ...

  7. Applying Novel Computational Chemistry Methods to Plume Signature Modeling of Low Thrust Propulsion Systems

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: MDA05045

    Understanding and modeling low thrust systems requires a fundamental understanding of the underlying physics and chemistry, which is not well known. Spectral Sciences, Inc. (SSI) proposes to develop and apply novel computational chemistry methods to quantify the key chemical processes giving rise to the plume signatures of low thrust systems. These processes will be integrated into the current s ...

  8. A Novel Method for Fast Rendering of Missile Plume Imagery

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: MDA05044

    Missile exhaust plume emission is the key observable for many of our missile defense sensor systems. High-fidelity plume signature models play a key role in the analysis and simulation of threat missile systems but they are too slow for applications requiring near real-time plume image generation. In order to address this and other limitations, Spectral Sciences, Inc. (SSI) proposes a novel da ...

  9. Fast Automatic Targeting Algorithms for Hyperspectral Sensors

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: A06045

    “Smart” and precision-guided Army weapons systems are being developed that use infrared (IR) hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensors for target detection and classification. Both the long-wavelength IR and mid-wavelength IR regions provide day/night, all-weather capabilities and discrimination based on thermal and emissivity contrast. New efficient and fast algorithms are needed to process the i ...

  10. Model-based Automated Target ID and Pose Estimation from SAR Data

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: A06206

    Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) and the determination of target intent from airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) depends on highly accurate pose determination. In this proposal prior knowledge, in the form of 3D target models, is applied to achieve ‘super resolution’; namely a resolution beyond the physical constraints of radar data acquisition and processing. With GPS positioning and hi ...
