Research Institution

Current Hypersonic projectile systems are being developed to collide with an enemy ballistic missile. Cyan Systems has developed very high definition EOIR imagers, that have the potential to create a compact precision strike weapon. The Hypersonic Electro Optical Seeker System (HEOSS) represents a revolutionary capability for Hypersonic Vehicles (HSVs) because of the extreme resolution, sensitivity, and short integration, kilo-hertz window frame rates which enables superior accurate aimpoint required in a very high velocity seeker. In order to successfully develop a compact seeker for Hypervelocity platforms, designs must address key challenges for high resolution, including aero-thermal issues for the seeker and window/aperture, compensation of local turbulence distortion and window heating effects on sensor.
