Abstract
Applied Science Innovations, Inc. proposes Phase II development of the real-time, Advance-Warning System for Active Detection of Snipers s (AWADS). Unlike most existing systems that react after the sniper takes a first shot, the novel AWADS electro-optical system will detect a potential sniper at a distance, before the sniper has a chance to take a shot. Compared to emerging systems based on reflection from optics, AWADS will automatically classify and discriminate between a pair of eyes and a riflescope, and between a casual observer and persistent surveillance. Countermeasures based on anti-reflective coatings on a reticle will fail against AWADS, unlike other optical sniper detection systems. AWADS is safer to accidental eye exposure at close range, compared to other systems. It will work autonomously, with no user participation. Detection range will exceed 600 meters, optimized for urban environment. Phase I has successfully produced systems design, algorithm development, and experimental demonstration of AWADS in laboratory conditions and outdoors. In Phase II, a fully functional, preproduction prototype will be built. Commercial marketing plan will be developed. In Phase III, AWADS will be commercially available for defense and civilian commercial applications.
