  1. A Physics-based Fusion Approach for Color Night Vision

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: A07071

    Common night vision systems use single-band sensors that are sensitive to either emitted or reflected infrared (IR) radiation, and thus provide a monochromatic image of the inspected scene. Adding color can increase depth, contrast and perception, improving soldiers' reaction time and reducing fatigue. However, current color night vision systems are quite limited in performance and range of appli ...

  2. High Fidelity CT Imaging of High-Z Materials for Rocket Motor Aging Detection

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF06191

    Propellant aging in solid rocket motors can result in various defects such as micro-cracks, fissuring, and abnormal density variations. These defects can lead to abnormal burn rates and unsafe operations of the motor. Nondestructive inspection of solid rocket motors is critical in monitoring solid rocket motors integrity. High energy gamma-ray CT is a nondestructive inspection method to evaluate s ...

  3. A Robust Accurate Earthshine Skyshine Reflection Model for Remote Space Objects

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF083213

    The Air Force space situational awareness mission includes the characterization, identification and real-time tracking of man-made resident space objects (RSO).  Classification and tracking is affected not only by background contrast but also by the reflected environment irradiance that contributes to its signature.  The total irradiance on the object from Earthshine/Skyshine and Airglow emissio ...

  4. Wide Area Space Surveillance System

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF083223

    Wide-area space surveillance systems are required to detect and identify space operations and characterize their activities.  Both requirements can be met with wide-area, high-dynamic-range sensors, similar to the Solar Mass Ejection Imager, but with performance enhancements for detection of Resident Space Objects (RSO) and their orbital maneuvers. A system of satellites, equipped with such senso ...

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

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: MDA05044

    Since infrared radiation from missile exhaust plumes is a key observable for many satellite sensors and interceptor seekers, considerable effort has been expended in developing and validating high-fidelity plume signature codes. However, their utility for systems studies of missile fly-outs is limited by extremely long run times for each calculation. Spectral Sciences developed a data-driven algo ...

  6. Terahertz Atmospheric Radiance Model (TARM)

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: A09AT001

    Interest in imaging applications of Terahertz (THz) radiation in many DoD areas has increased lately with recent advances in electronic and electro-optical THz sources, as well as progress in receiver and system technology. The accurate description of atmospheric attenuation effects on THz radiation is crucial for remote sensing applications. A growing number of resources are becoming publicly av ...

  7. Full Spectral Signature Simulation Models for Chemical Releases

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: 44c

    Technologies that enable the remote detection, identification, and quantification of trace chemical species in the atmosphere can provide critical information for uncovering activities associated with proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Passive detection techniques use infrared and visible sensors to measure the scene radiance, followed by data analysis to separate background and a ...

  8. A Microwave Spectral Emission Model for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF083256

    Early detection of threat missile launches is key for missile defense strategy.  However, detecting surface launches using space-based sensors under all illumination (day/night) and weather (clear/cloudy) conditions is extremely challenging.  While rarely considered for this problem, the microwave region (~3-300 GHz, ~1-100 cm-1, ~10(+4)-10(+2) micron) offers excellent cloud penetration and is n ...

  9. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants for Condensed Phases

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF08BT19

    A core component of aerospace manufacturing is based on cutting-edge technological applications of material design.  Chemical kinetics models are vital for interpreting experimental measurements and predicting the behavior of these complex systems.  Modern computational chemistry software programs are invaluable for the accurate prediction of reaction rates for kinetics models, but their use is ...

  10. Structured Emission Thermometry Sensor for Burner Control

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: 16a

    Industrial processes such as glass production burn huge quantities of natural gas. Burner settings are often set with large error margins to avoid producing pollution. Often, burners are set ¿by eye,¿ with feedback provided from one global stack-gas sensor. Because multiple burners are used, the use of a single sensor tends to obfuscate which burner may be improperly set. These margins ...
