Abstract
Advanced Coherent Technologies, LLC (ACT) has demonstrated the value of simple Visible-Near Infrared (VNIR) EO multispectral system in small packages in recent US Navy sponsored Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) programs (N06-013, N05-119 and N07-019) as well as in the current Multimission Advanced Sensor System (MASS) project which is focused on deploying a VNIR multispectral sensor on the TigerShark UAV for NAVIAR 4.5.x. The sensor system being developed for Whale Search Radar (SBIR N07-019) will consist of three VNIR mulitispectral cameras, one Sony block zoom video camera and one LWIR microbolometer. The cameras are integrated into a modified CloudCap T2 turret (7 lbs). The success of these programs provide an excellent launching point to satisfy the current SBIR topic. The ACT team plans to leverage the progress made in current VNIR MSI programs and will focus both on miniaturizing the system for deployment in UAV’s (replacing the current single board computer used for processing with a field programmable gate array based system for example) and on tailoring the system for JMMES applications. It is the objective of this project to incorporate as much of the multimission capability available in the JMMES system into the Tier II UAV payload package.
