Abstract

We are proposing to develop Neuro-IR Tracker, a system design for a bio-inspired sensor optimized to detect hypersonic missile targets. In Phase 1, we will design and assess the feasibility of a novel bio-inspired sensing system which includes Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) microbolometer imager (MMI), brain-inspired image processor and realtime software detection tools. We will estimate its performance via simulation and complete a work plan for Phase II. As part of Phase I, we will propose an end-to-end design to include everything from the optics to the final processor outputting target reports. Approved for Public Release |21-MDA-10789 (21 Apr 21)
