Abstract
Polarization imaging system has been explored as a method to improve target detection capabilities in remote sensing and other applications. Polarization imaging can improve target contrast, reduce clutter, aid in the defeat of intervening scatterers, and provide orientation information about various target features. The feasibility of polarization technology application in separation of a boost or bus from the associated plume, target discrimination etc. has been demonstrated theoretically and experimentally. Dymas Research proposes an innovative polarization imaging system using electro-optic material. Our proposed polarization imaging system is portable and light, consumes less power, does not have moving parts, works very fast, and eliminates the misregistration issue. We are confident that this unique polarization imaging system will provide a promising tool for DOD to identify and locate time critical targets.
