Research Institution
Not Available Pacific Advanced Technology (PAT) will bring over ten years of experience in spectral imaging to this effort to develop a low cost, lightweight, visible spectral imaging system that will enhance visibility during hazy and low visibility conditions. This will be done by exploiting the spectral information about the scene, atmosphere, and target and thus improve the detection and tracking capabilities by using spectral imaging and spectral image signal processing algorithms. PAT, a leader in state-of-the-art spectral imaging, has several spectral imagers that will be used as part of the data collection effort prior to the conceptual design of the camera that will be built during the Phase II portion of this program. This camera will be based upon the Pacific Advanced Technology patented IMSS imaging spectrometer, that consists of a single optical element, is very light, robust and can be produced for about the same cost as a commercial camcorder. The spectral processing algorithms will be performed in DSP's embedded in the camera to make a complete low cost lightweight system that is applicable for airborne applications.
