Abstract
TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc. (R3-DS) proposes to develop and commercialize an extension kit for "Big-Eye" and other binoculars that will automatically compute and store distance and bearing assessments by combining vertical reticle and stereoscopy measurement with motion analysis techniques. It will also capture and store photographic and video evidence of what the observer sees through the binocular.SUMMARY OF ANTICIPATED RESULTS: This Phase I SBIR will demonstrate feasibility and result in a preliminary concept design concept of operations, and additional commitments from end-users. The Phase II SBIR will result in an advanced prototype extension kit that will be demonstrated in multiple ocean trials. Phase Ill will leverage private and federal funds and result in low volume sales of first article extension kits to early adopters from the scientific, military and civil ian sectors
