Abstract
Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to develop an inertially stabilized smart camera (ISSC) which provides an innovative inertial-sensor-based / digital-image-stabilization hybrid solution to the problems posed by long standoff, narrow field of view imaging. This solution makes use of ATA’s magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) angular rate sensors (ARS), FPGA-based mechanical control and digital stability algorithms to achieve the solicitation objectives. Low frequency motion is addressed through closed-loop mechanical control, and higher frequency motion is addressed through the use of an open loop sensed motion based digital stability algorithm.
